  • District of Columbia Print Shop Licenses and Permits

    Because the District of Columbia is a state, county and city all in one, its residents can enjoy fewer regulatory agencies than in other part of the country. Additionally, the District is making efforts to streamline its licensing process, slowly moving application processes online and making forms easier to complete.

    In District of Columbia, retail businesses of all sorts including toy stores, clothing shops, photography businesses and general merchandisers need licenses and permits. In most cases, retail businesses take relatively few licenses – however being registered for all state and local taxes is important as is having any needed general business licenses.
