2022 Business Licenses & Permits Guide The 2022 Business Licenses & Permits Guide is now available!
This resource is a great tool for anyone interested in starting a business in the state of Texas. The guide offers information on licenses and permits that may be required for more than 300 business types, including direct links to appropriate state resources that can help address permitting needs.
We also encourage you to utilize the License & Permit Tracker template to safely store your federal, state and local business license and permit information and know when they are due for renewal.
Please let us know if you have any questions regarding the guide or how to start your business in the Lone Star State. Specific licensing and permitting questions may be directed to the Business Permits Office, or you may contact the Governor's Office of Small Business Assistance at firstname.lastname@example.org.
