Heavy fines, garnished wages, confiscation of my equipment? Is there a grace period so you can accumulate the funds? I would get my food handlers permit for the ice cream cart. Would I need to get a business license before that permit by the health department. My business is pulling an ice cream cart around neighborhoods locally with a reverse trike 50 cc. I also was wondering why an incorporation was so much more expensive than an llc. Can the government confiscate if you have either of these or are they protected?
