Wait for Business Tax Registration in USA?

1 0 0

Does everyone wait to launch store and start selling before being approved for business tax registration with their state? 

What happens is you start some sample orders or open the store in general before receiving approval? 

Can you start selling and just pay them the appropriate taxes later once they approve registration and it’s due?
