How do you get a resale license?
Typically, you apply for a number from your state’s tax agency, which issues you a resale license, permit or certificate bearing the number. Then, when you make purchases that aren’t subject to sales tax, you provide the merchant your license or certificate number.
Is a seller’s permit and a resale license the same thing?
Seller’s Permit or “Sales Tax” License. A seller’s permit allows a state to identify a business as a collector of sales tax. Although most businesses with a resale certificate have a seller’s permit, some manufacturers never sell a product for resale and only provide components for other products.
How do I get a resale tax ID number?
A resale number is the number attached to your reseller’s permit or license. When you get a reseller’s permit or licence from your state government, it will have your resale number. You can then give this number to suppliers to buy goods for resale without paying the sales tax for those items.
