In most cases, home-based businesses do require a business license. Most cities require home-based businesses to have a license and may even have a separate application.
In addition, you may need multiple business licenses. For example, if your business does business in multiple cities, you will need a license for each city that requires one. There are also state business licenses and, less commonly, federal business licenses for certain businesses.
