Hello and thank you for your question. Yes, you can open and legally operate a sole proprietorship and a business bank account in another state (Tennessee). You'll need to obtain a Tennessee business license, in the city and county where you operate: For example, http://www.scoreknox.org/library/businesslicense.htm http://www.countyclerkanytime.com/forms/BK209--Application%20for%20New%20Business%20Tax%20License.pdf http://www.bristoltn.org/planning/Web%20Page%20Links/Business%20License%20Appliation%5B1%5D.pdf http://www.cityofathenstn.com/finance/pdf/BusinessLisenseOnline.pdf You should phone the town clerk where you'll be operating to get the necessary form. Be sure to ask about both a city license and a county license. As the instructions to the Michigan income tax return show, you will have to pay Michigan income tax on what you earn in Tennessee (Tennessee is not one of the 'reciprocal states.' http://www.michigan.gov/documents/BOOK_MI-1040_111249_7.pdf That's it!
