We have an LLC but not made a profit yet Our accountant said we don't file unless we show a profit 3 out of 5 years - is that correct? 

If I am selling a service ,such as home staging and redesign do I need a business license I am not selling NY goods, maybe n occasional piece of art I sell my own art on the internet and in galleries and I work at home.

I want to know what i need to sell my work in this state.I am an artist who will be selling original art prints and other self made products t at California based conventions.
Art
As an artist, you are like a manufacturer.  You create art such as a painting and you sell  it for a profit.  That requires a sellers permit because a painting is a piece of merchandise and merchandise is taxable.  
Art
is a very difficult business to start up.
For example, some 59% of photographers give up their business in the first year. Of that remaining 42%, another 24% will fail within the 2nd year.
Actually, only about 18% will endure through the 3rd year. That means that more than 84% of photographer start ups give up before the 3rd year of operation. So do your research like you would do with any other business. Research the market and who your clients will be.  Then consider the licensing you need for your Art  business. 
First, select your business structure: Sole Proprietor, Partnership, LLC or Corporation. 
The above step is important business all documents will be filed under the type of business organizational structure. Anyhow, if you do not expect much business, just select sole proprietor as a start up photographer business. 
After that, you will need to obtain a business permit because Art  is a business and all businesses need one.. 
This is a general business permit that all new businesses must obtain. 
In addition, all Art  businesses must be identified by a business tax ID called a federal tax ID number or Employer Identification Number (EIN). If you file as a photography sole proprietor, you can use your social security number instead of the federal ID. 
Then, a seller's permit is required if you sell Art merchandise, such as canvas, frames, paint, etc., wholesale or retail. 
The sellers permit is also called state ID, wholesale ID, resale ID, or re-seller license.
If you are an employer, you will need a federal employer Number and a State Employer Number.
For example if you hire someone to help you with photo finishing etc.
If you do business as a name other than your full legal name, for example, you do business as "Art4 u," you will need to file a doing business as (DBA) filing.
Finally, you have the option or incorporating or forming anArtLLC.
