New, thorough business license application crossing a line?

Hazleton, PA changes its business license application in an effort to reduce business fraud.

Councilman David Sosar disagrees with requesting what he believes is an unnecessary amount of information from business owners, including social security numbers, banks used for business accounts, names of accountants and utility information...“We’ve all been getting a lot of calls from residents who are business owners,” said Sosar. “They don’t want to provide such a great deal of information; they think it’s intrusive.”

We won't judge if this is a necessary or potentially overreaching step to take in preventing fraud, but we will tell you that no matter what the business license application process is like, we can help with the filing. We can also help figure out what licenses you need to file yourself.
