Yes. What kind of business is it
? What state? Are you going to have employees? There really is no one size fits all advice simply because there are a ton of factors.

I worked as an independent contractor for years. There is a lot of paperwork involved, including retail and income taxes,  the equivalent of SS, insurance. Getting a retail tax number is easy, but this has to be worked out and sent in several times a year, as well as estimated taxes.

I've never started a business. My sister has had a few and is about to start up a coffee shop. I know nothing about running a business other than it's hard. 

Good luck to you and I hope it works out!

Never borrow money to start a business.  Start small and invest money from your company to make it grow.
