You need to register with your state as doing business in it, but that's simply a matter of filing paperwork (which you can do online) with your state's department of state and paying a small fee; here's a link to a helpful webpage maintained by your state: https://sos.oregon.gov/business/pages/starting-business.aspx.
Certain types of businesses (e.g. daycare, contracting, hair saloons) might require specific licenses in addition to the above: you need to look up the requirements for your proposed business in your state.
