Required State License(s):
The Michigan Department of State's Business Compliance and Regulation Division licenses and regulates Michigan's motor vehicle repair facilities and mechanics. For more information visit our website www.michigan.gov/sos or call 1-888-SOS-MICH (888-767-6424).
There is NO state license required for small engine repair (lawn mower engines, etc.) However, if parts are sold to an individual who will be repairing their own mowers, a sales tax license is required with the Department of Treasury. You may call the Michigan Department of Treasury at 517-636-4660 and request a Registration For Michigan Taxes form (518).
