Ok, I have a few questions about beginning a photography/graphics operation in the US. I plan to do on-site work only, nothing with a studio in particular. What I want to know, is if I need to apply for an EIN. I know I have to register the company locally, and I have all the equipment. This is a join venture with my boyfriend and myself. It will be a partnership. I am currently working on a business plan and knpow who and where to go to for the state forms, but am not sure about federal forms and costs. Also, taxes... do I need to do anything special for the taxes, or can I just go to a normal tax place to have them do it for me? Any and all help would be appreciated.
