“Texas: Wide Open for Business”

“Texas—Wide Open for Business” has been the state slogan to attract business since 2003.

Texas is Wide Open for Business.
Starting a business in Texas requires only four primary steps: Choosing a Business Structure, Getting an Employer Identification Number (also known as a federal tax I.D. number), Setting up Tax Information, and, for most businesses, Preparing for Employees. This site will walk you through each of these steps, giving you the tools, information, and confidence you need to begin offering your products and services to citizens and organizations within the state.
