It is confusing... is a seller's permit license same as a sales permit?;
Yes, a seller's permit license is the same as a sales permit.
So what is a resale permit? ;
A resale permit is called resale because in most cases you buy wholesale and you resell retail that is why it is also called a reseller permit.
So what is a resellers license?;
A seller's permit or resellers permit license 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, first, select your Flea Market Business business structure: Like all businesses, you can choose from a Sole Proprietor, Partnership, LLC or Corporation.
Choosing the business legal structure is important because all tax IDs and other legal documents are filed under the type of legal structure.
It makes a big difference filing as a sole owner and filing as an LLC, for example.
Then, a seller's permit is required if you sell flea market merchandise wholesale or retail.
In fact, most of the items sold including knives and flags at a flea market, even food is taxable so you need a seller's permit.
Now let us say you hire a couple of guys to help you sell stuff at the flea market.
If so, you will be considered an employer and you will need a federal employer Number and a State Employer Number.
Users of a trade name will need a fictitious business name filing.
Finally, even if you are just a sell knives and flags sole owner, and a small business, you have the option or incorporating or forming an LLC. If you do, you will not have to file a DBA.
