The Lone Star Republic stands proudly in favor of business. Texas makes licensing easy. Most regulatory areas are centralized at the state-level where applicants enjoy simple forms and relatively few of them. Most cities don't have general business licenses and require few specialty permits compared to other major cities. Overall, starting a business in Texas is easy -- and with low tax rates, Texas strives to seduce entrepreneurs into furthering its large economy.
