Each state (and sometimes each county) that you reside in determines if you need a business license.
Some states like Alaska and Washington require everyone who conducts business to have alicense. Other states only require one if you have public interaction (people coming into your home) or your business have an enviromental effect (like pollution).
I suggest contacting your chamber of commerce and get a contact number for the individual in charge of licensing to see if you need one.
Usually an applicaiton and fee is all that is required if you do.
I've worked for multiple companies from home for several years and have never been asked to obtain one, so not every company will ask.
Don't turn down a good position if they are asking you to obtain one either. It's a simple process and sound scarrier than it is.
Good luck to you!
