Thank you for your question. I am happy to assist you.
Typically you could open a similar business that performs the same business activity as your husband's business had performed. However, you cannot reopen your husband's business.
To open a similar business, you would need to obtain a business license and sales tax permit in a business name that differs, even if slightly, from the name on your husband's business license.
I hope that the information which I provided was helpful to you.
Best wishes for a successful outcome. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to submit them to me directly.
