are required to obtain a Seller's Permit.

Any business location is covered, including home businesses as well as eBay and online sales, unless the seller is except from taxation. Exempt from taxation are non profit corporations for example.

Here is whatyou need to start a business:

1. ALL Businesses ( home, eBay & online included) Must Register the Business with a Business License ( What is a Business License ) & Must Register the Business NAME with A DBA -- ( What is a DBA ) -- instead of filing a DBA, you can incorporate or form an LLC.

2. Retailers / Wholesalers, Must Register for sales tax with a Seller's Permit ( also called wholesale, resale, reseller, state id, sales id etc).

3. Employers Must Register for Employment Taxes with a Federal Employer ID Number & State Employer ID Number ( you also need a federal id if you incorporate or form an llc).

4. Optionally, get a federal tax id because all businesses MUST be identified by a BUSINESS TAX ID NUMBER. If you don't get a federal tax id, you will need to use your social sec number to identify your business.

NOTE: A Seller's permit with that name (seller's permit) may not be issued to wholesalers, manufacturers and other businesses not making direct retail sales of tangible property or taxable services. Normally, a sales tax id with another term is used, such as perhaps a wholesale license.

When should I apply?

Apply for a seller's permit at least three weeks before you open your business. You must apply for a new permit if yoiu buying a business from another owner.

What if i applied but have not received my Permit? In such case, you are allowed to make retail sales of tangible personal property and taxable services. However, you are responsible to keep records and pay the government for all your sales tax. A Bond May Be Required Before or after you are issued a seller's permit, the state may require you to make a security deposit depending on the volume of merchandise you sell. A security deposit is usually required after you exceed a certain amount. Deposit ranges from $100 to $15,000 depending on the state.

Security is usually requested when there has been a history of delinquent taxes associated with the applicant or the amount of taxes expected to be generated from sales is usually high. Issuing of the Seller's Permit After submitting the Application for Sales Tax Registration and the security deposit (if requested), you will soon receive the permit in the mail. You must display the seller's permit in a location at your place of business.

In some states, a consumer's tax certificate is required for businesses that regularly purchases or leases taxable property or services for storage, use, or consumption and a sales or use tax was not paid. This certificate is not required if a business already holds a seller's permit or use tax certificate.

Use Tax Certificate

A use tax certificate is similar to a seller's permit but it is for an other than the issuing state 's residents. For example you are a business in California but you are engaged in business in Wisconsin. In such case you are an out-of-state retailer who is not required to hold a seller's permit, but you are making retail sales, leases, or rentals of tangible personal property or providing taxable services in Wisconsin.

For example, if you are an out-of-state retailer and have physical presence (legal nexus) in some states, you may be required to register and collect the tax.

Sometimes it is confusing because a seller's permit license is the same as a sales permit. It is a permit for sales of taxable items and it is called a sellers permit. In essense, however, it is a tax permit and to be more exact, a resale permit because in most cases you buy wholesale and you resell retail that is why it is also called a reseller permit. A seller's permit or resellers permit is a resell permit of merchandise and it is used as a sales tax permit because you collect sales tax and you pay the state. So, to conclude, it is a permit to sell taxable merchandise and collect sales tax. How do I obtain a permit?
