Tip: To locate your County Clerk's Office, GOOGLE phrases like "Your County Name" and County Clerk; or "Your City Name" and "County Clerk".
Search for Business "Licenses and Permits" Regulations by State: Every business needs one or more federal, state or local licenses or permits to operate. Licenses can range from a basic operating license to very specific permits. Regulations vary by industry, state and locality, so it's very important to understand the licensing rules where your business is located. Not complying with licensing and permitting regulations can lead to expensive fines and put your business at serious risk.

Help Devising a Zip Code List: In your effort to come up with a list of zip codes in which your company does business (or in which your company can do business), use the United States Post Office's Zip Code Finder. You can find a ZIP Code by entering an address, and you can also search for a partial address, such as "Green Street, Los Angeles, CA." Find it at this link: http://zip4.usps.com/zip4/welcome.jsp.
D-U-N-S Number Tip: Don't "pay" for a D-U-N-S Number! Some companies charge $149 and up when they box it with other services. Getting your number is free, free, free if you are signing up as a vendor on government contract registration websites.
