    Yes, all businesses are taxed.

    You, as the owner, get to pay double on the "payroll" taxes...

    You would need a business license and would owe income tax.

    Yes, you will. In the city of LA you even need to pay a local tax.

    yes - you're legally required to report the income and the expenses and pay income tax on the profit as self employment, for both state and federal

    You will get taxed income tax on any profits you have based on what you report filing your tax returns by CA and the federal government. You would be self employed and be taxed self-employment taxes on revenue. Good luck.

    Both, plus Social Security or FICA that would be required.
