New businessess whether home or other types will need a general tax registration that could be a business permit and or license. Sole proprietors just need that plus perhaps a registration of a business name certificate if in fact the business is using an assumed business name. E.g. if the business is called "Superior Medical Billing" it will need to file a DBA. Other than that employer sole owners will need both a federal ein and a state ein and if selling any type of widgets such as items on eBay or Etsy will need a state reseller number also called a seller ID or resale number. Finally starting businesses must choose a business legal/tax structure. There are 4 major business entity structures: 1. A sole proprietorship a partnership an LLC and a corporation. You can select any one of them. If you select a sole proprietorship you will need at a minimum a business tax registration (business license) and a trade business name registration.
