All kinds of goodness grows in Idaho soil -- from the state's famous Russet Potatoes to all manner of precious and semi-precious gemstones. Idaho issues a fair number of business licenses and permits at the state level, leaving cities to go easy on the licenses and permits they require of entrepreneurs.
In Idaho, home-based businesses have become increasingly popular. People looking for flexible lifestyles or just to work from home can usually set up these businesses easily. While in many cities including Los Angeles and New York, only standard business licensing requirements apply, numerous cities and counties require Home Occupation Permits for home-based businesses.
