This would depend on the type of business that you want to open. Regulations vary by type of business and what State you want to operate in.

Do you have an idea as to what type of business you are interested in opening and in what State?

As mentioned, each state has their own requirements (which will include if/how to register with the Federal government as well). Here is the web address for new small business owners for NC, and their phone number is 1-800-228-8443

You'd first likely want to decide if you are registering a corporation (stock or non-stock) or LLC. Depending on this, the requirements vary by state. You can find the differences here:

Most states have conditional requirements based on what type of business you're operating. You can google "Register business with state of XXX" to determine the resource for this information. It will typically be available on the Secretary of State's information.
