Do I need any sort of license? Does createspace take care of sales tax?

Hi everyone,

 

I'm in Colorado and I haven't published anything yet, but I was wondering if I need a business or any other sort of license if I only intend to sell through Createspace and KDP. I have waded through a lot of free information from my state online in the past few days, but they haven't covered self-publishing specifically so far. I also was wondering if I will need to keep track of and pay sales tax or does Createspace take care of that?

If all of your sales are through those channels (i.e., you're not selling books to directly to customers yourself), then you don't need any type of license or permit, and you do not need to worry about collecting state sales tax.
