Thank you for the information customeczar. I actually spoke with mr. clinton of VDACS and he stated for anyone interested in having their location inspected and certified should contact their home office at 804-221-3621 and let them know exactly what county your home is located, which will determine whether a homebased food business can be established in that area.
Another piece of information that maybe helpful for those who are considering establishing an LLC is to try legalzoom.com to establish the articles with the state corporation commission. (fee)
You can get a Federal Identification number (FEIN) from the IRS for free @ www.irs.gov
and you can also register for your sales tax account number @ www.tax.virginia.gov
for free online, which after the registration you can download your sales tax certificate.
I hope this information is helpful.
