Examples of different types of licenses include: Basic Business Operations License, State Tax ID number, Home Occupation Permit, Zoning and Land Use Permit, Building Permit, Health Department Permit, Sales Tax Permit, Fire and Police Department Permit, Special State Issued Business License or Occupational Licenses.
