    Hello.

    I see all the Indians ( most with EAD) coming to the us earning money through other means As in baby sitting kids at their home or selling items that they buy from India like clothes jewelry and making lots of money that way. But my only question is this legal. Even though they have EADs don’t they need licenses to sell anything or even babysit. I am tempted to try these myself but at the same time I don’t want to get into trouble if indeed there is license required.

    Babysitting is hard work. There are many people who do it without being licensed and just taking cash but you are taking a big risk in case something happens.

    May be selling some dresses may be not illegal, people sell stuff on websites.
    But baby sitting, without license, both parents and babysitter are in trouble if any thing like fall/injury(it can be very small but) happens and needs a doctor visit, there you need to record where it happened. It is not for babysitter earning money but because of no childcare license.

    Check with you local public agency like county or city. If you have this license, i think you can sell clothes/jewelry at fair or farmers market etc. I dont know if online shops applies to this. It is probably a local business license. You will have to pay taxes on money you earn. You must have SSN or tax identification number and work permit to do this. But it will be legal.
