I am having truble getting all the legal stuff like tax id number, state resale number etc etc. Also how do I copyright my designs i would cry if i saw any one else using them
1) You have copyright upon creation of the design so there is no need to "copyright" them. You are interested in registering
the copyright with the feds to protect yourself should someone steal them. While it is not necessary to register a copyright, it is advisable. If someone does steal, you will have an easier time proving your case in court if you have registered the copyright. Go to the US Copyright Office website - it can be done online. I believe it costs around $35.
2) If your design is also your company logo, then registering
the trademark is also important and costs more. I think around $300 per mark. Go to the US Patent and Trademark website - this can be done online too.
3) Someone, somewhere mentioned that you don't need a tax ID number because you can use your SSN. They are correct however, the tax ID number is used as an identifier by the government, banks etc. In this day of identity theft, you might not want your SSN floating around on all of your business papers. I would advise you to get an EIN number since it is easy, free and can be done on the phone or online. Go to the IRS website.
4) As for the state resale number - I would start at the state division of corporation for whatever state you are in. They usually have all the information you need to start any type of business. There shouldn't be a fee associated with this.
I know lawyers can be costly but if you want to protect your business, it is money well spent.
