I've been offered a part-time 1099 job.  The doc mentioned that the previous NP had a business license when working with him.  For those NPs working as 1099, do you have a business license?  Thank you.

No, you do not need a business license. If you decided to put your name on a sign outside your office soliciting business then you will need to sign up for a business license (register for a "trade name") with the town/city you are in.  The city will then send you a form every year asking you to list all your assets (I.e. desk, computer, etc) within that business location and then tax you on it. As a psych APRN I have a sign (Joe Public, APRN) on my office suite and have a business license for medical marijuana certifications and pay about $37 per year just for a desk, some chairs and couple tables. You can also form an LLC for liability purposes but if you have a sign outside you would still have to file a business license with town/city using your LLC name.
