Crack an egg, teach someone to drive a snowmobile, brew your own beer - Oregon cares. And it has a license for that. Business-owners in one of the most license-heavy states in the Union, need to carefully research the many requirements of their state, county and local governments before doing business. After all, you can't make an omelet without cracking a few eggs -- but you can't do that without applying and paying a fee.
In Oregon, retail businesses of all sorts including toy stores, clothing shops, photography businesses and general merchandisers need licenses and permits. In most cases, retail businesses take relatively few licenses – however being registered for all state and local taxes is important as is having any needed general business licenses.
