Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only. Are you looking to sell only online?

Hi! Thanks, ***** ***** will be sold online via website and amazon
Lawyer: Law Educator, Esq., Attorney replied 1 year ago
Thank you for your reply.
Right now online sales such as that are not really regulated. So no license is necessary and you do not really even need to form a corporation or LLC. There is no retail sales license or anything necessary for online sales, but if you sell to anyone in the state where you are located, you are supposed to be charging and remitting sales tax to the department of revenue for those sales.

I do plan on selling in the state Im located in and do plan on paying for taxes. Im mostly concerned with the ETL certification, just in case I need it to save my ass
Lawyer: Law Educator, Esq., Attorney replied 1 year ago
Thank you for your reply.
The ETL certification is not mandatory, but in the event of a defect or injury from the product, having irons with ETL certification can protect you from liability. So it is not mandatory, but it does offer you protection.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
