Bus for Business purposes

I am wanting to run my company out of my bus, but have no idea about how to go about this for tax purposes.
Did you register your bus as a company vehicle?
Did you get a license to sell or work in all states?
Do you have an EIN?
What should be the first step?

Running a business was not even on my list of things to do while converting the bus but now I am stepping into a different area of expertise and need help. thanks so much for advice and tips I could not have done this without yall's help!!

First set up an LLC and buy the bus under it, it's a tax write-off. Your setting up the LLC will get you your ein

I have no clue on the interstate sellers permit, you may need to get one per state or county. I have a cab company and need to be licensed in each city. I'm pretty sure most business are less restricted paperwork wise than mine is

Well, we have already bought our bus so I don't know how I might still write it off.

I think you can still write it off if the LLC and bus are in your name, or you could sell your bus to the business

I can say with certainty that there are many people out there, that look for commercial vehicles to have "accidents" with. Be mindful of that when you are painting and decorating your business.
