Do I need a business license for voice over work?

Hey there. Trying to setup my first gig here on Fiverr as a voiceover artist and I’m not sure if I need legal paperwork to do it by the book. So, as the title says, do I need a business license (or any legal paperwork through the city, county, and/or state) to transact business as a voiceover artist?

If you are in the U.S. and collect sales tax according to your state laws on that subject yes. If you do not collect sales taxes, which you do not do, then no.

In most states no business license is required to do voiceover work as you don’t collect state or local taxes nor is it a state regulated profession such as a hairstylist job.
