New Mexico welcomes business and makes it easy to get started. Although the state maintains consumer and environmental protections, it keeps processes simple and costs low. The state is not highly bureaucratic, although it is mildly understaffed. Entrepreneurs will find relatively low taxes and easy entry possible in the Old Southwest.
In New Mexico, in our increasingly high tech world, IT and Software businesses abound. Many tech wizards are interested to start their own businesses because overhead can be very low, while profits can be quite high. Like all businesses, tech operations must hold required state and local licenses. In some cities, like Chicago and New York, IT repair businesses need special regulatory permits.
