NJ Business Code for Freelance Writer

Asked 12 months ago - Neptune, NJ

I am getting prepared to fill out my NJ_REG form and in the space for the business code, I am not sure what to put. I am a freelance writer. Does "word processing" count as what I do? That is the closest writing-related topic I could find on the list of codes. Otherwise, would I use 2700 (misc services)?
