New York State License Center

When trying to get to the NYS Online Permit Assistance and Licensing site is "temporarily unavailable."

The message reads:

For information regarding the status of your OPAL ID, please contact the OPAL Help Line at (518) 474-8275 during the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday – Friday, except State observed holidays.

For information about starting or expanding your business, please visit the New York State License Center. [This page, which I was not familiar with previously, seems to have most OPAL stuff.] Under the heading, “Other NYS License Center Services”, click on the second bulleted hyperlink, “Find out what permits or licenses your business needs” to access the Business Wizard Home page.

To apply online for a Certificate of Authority to Collect Sales Tax or Certificate of Registration to Sell Cigarettes and Tobacco Products, please visit the New York State License Center at and click on the “Login to get started” link.

For filing a Certificate of Incorporation or Articles of Organization, please visit the NYS Department of State’s Online Filing System at
