Fort Worth Business Tax Registration ( Business License)
All businesses including home, online or mobile BUSINESS need a BUSINESS license because they are BUSINESSES.

A(n) Ministry business using a fictitious business name in Tarrant County i.e. you are a business with a trade name other than the owner's legal (full name) name are required to get a(n) fictitious business name.   For instance you open a(n) Ministry business and you name it "Superior Ministry Group". You will need to file a fictitious business name for that name.

In Texas you need a resale ID ( AKA seller's permit) if you selling touchable items.  (A.K.A state id, wholesale, resale, reseller certificate, about $39 for most states).
Seller's Permit

Note: All businesses need a federal tax ID number except sole proprietors that are not employers and are not independent contractors.
An independent contractor is a self employed business person that receives more than $600 per year from anyone of his or her clients.
IRS rule: The client must issue a 1099 form to the independent contractor and the independent contractor must have a federal tax ID. However, even sole owners may obtain a federal ID and use it as a business tax ID instead of using their own social security number as a business tax ID number.
However, all other licenses that apply to sole proprietors as discussed here are requited regardless of getting a federal tax ID number.

Also keep in mind that employers will need to obtain a federal EIN and a State EIN tax identificattion number. I.e., a TX Federal Tax Id Number ($29)  and a(n) TX  State Employer Tax Number  

Instead of filing a fictitious business name DBA Filing (about $49 plus state and legal newspaper publication fees) in Fort Worth, Incorporate in TX  or form a(n) TX LLC

You have a choice to file a DBA or form an LLC or incorporate. If you will do business under your first and last legal name you will not need to get a fictitious business name.
Using any language that connotes additional owners in the name of the business makes filing a fictitious business name mandatory.

If you do form an Other llc or incorporate (about $49 plus state fees for most states) your Ministry business instead of just filing a fictitious business name (dba), that insurs that you don't have personal liability for debts and civile liabililty arising from your business dealings and you will not have to record the Fort Worth business name. In lieu of recording a Tarrant County trade company name (our filing service fee includes trade name registration and newspaper legal publication for 4 weeks) you can also form a corporation in Texas or form an TX LLC (starts @ $49 plus state fee for most states & includes required documents such as bylaws for the corporation and Limited Liability operating agreement for the LLC). .

LLC (Limited Liability Company) FAQs:

Q: Is setting up an LLC a better choice than filing a DBA?

A: If the business market projection is a target fot the company you should consider forming an LLC. For example if the assumed business name is . deDan Robertstch Goal MinistriesCo. this company name as well as any other business name must be filed with the clerk as a trade name registration and that requires a filing fee to be registered.

A trade registration is requred but if the owner wants to use the business name exclusively he or she cannot because anyone else can also file the same trade name. Nor does the trade name registration protects the owner from personal legal or financial liability as forming a limited liability company (LLC) . It is perhaps a better choice to just incorporate for the same or a little higher fee because you will also have corporate protection for the business name and personal vs business liabilities.

E.g. if your business has debts the lender can sue you personally to obtain a judgment vs your personal assets as opposed in the case you were a corporation where the lender could only sue the corporation directly and if the limited liability company (LLC) had no assets the lender could get nothing.

A limited liability company (LLC) affords more prestige and it helps you obtain business loans.

Q: What if I am a very small company? Do I need a limited liability company (LLC)?
A: You do not need an LLC. However

Q: I already have a tax ID as a sole proprietor can I use it for the LLC I am forming now?
A: Forming a new type of entity of a business constitutes change of status for that business and that requires you to get new licenses and tax IDs under your name.

Q: What if I an an out of state business? Do I still need to register and obtain a limited liability company (LLC)?
A: Unless you have a location in the state you sell it is not required to form an LLC there.

Q: When do I have to change my limited liability company (LLC)?
A: You may have to get a new tax ID number if your status as a business changes. For example if you change from sole owner to a partnership or from LLC to corporation as well as when you buy a new business you need to get a new tax ID under your business name or individual name.

Q: Do I need to obtain a federal or state tax ID number before forming a limited liability company (LLC) or getting other licenses?

Q: What is a DUNS Number?
A: Dun & Bradstreet is a business credit rating company and they use your info to inform lenders about how credit worthy you are.

Q: Do I need to pay sales tax to the state as an LLC?
A: Paying sales tax depends on your state. For example in Oregon you dont need to pay sales tax but you still need a resale certificate to buy from other states wholesale products.
