Hello, I started a small business, based in Philadelphia, making and selling dancewear online and recently in dance boutiques as well. Today I purchased my Business Privilege License. I thought I was eligible to get my BPL for free because I am a first timer but the form stated that if I was not planning on hiring 3 or more employees that I was not eligible. Did I read the form wrong? Did I just waste $300? If I did read it wrong and I am in fact eligible for a free BPL then how do I go about getting a refund? The second part to my question is....... where can I find out what to charge in taxes, if anything. I know that there is no sales tax on clothing in PA but what about when I sell a skirt to a girl in NY,CA, FL or even the Netherlands. Where is the site that gives me this info? Or is it best to seek professional help from a business accountant? This is all very new to me and I am learning with each mistake I make. I am hoping that by reaching out to those of you who have been in my shoes, I can avoid a few mistakes. Hopefully, one day I can return the favor to a naive , new business owner like myself. Thank you!!! AbbieM
