BestXYZ Co. Business permits and Tax ID number Requirements Van John Doesen 8/26/2013 9:35 PM

Sellers Permit or Resale License

If you want to buy any taxable merchandise such as jewelry or clothing at wholesale prices to make jewelry to re-sell, or to buy clothing and accessories to resell them, then you need state sellers permit or sales tax license also called a resale license.

States Require A Sellers Permit

This is because most states require jewelry vendors to collect tax on sales made within that state as opposed to out of state.  For example, you are in California and you sell a piece of jewelry, e.g., a gold ring, to a New Yorker.  Since your business is located in CA, you do not need to charge taxes.  

Selling in-state requires that you charge sales tax

On the other hand, if you sell in California you need to charge sales tax on every retail sale that’s shipped to any address within California.
So if you are selling your jewelry,  get your sellers permit also called a resale license.
There is no other way to buy wholesale and re-sell retail.  The implication is that even if you sell just wholesale, you still need to get the resale license.
This is because in the end... the end user has to pay sales tax.  Hence the requirement to get a sellers permit as a wholesaler so the state can monitor sales between wholesalers and retailers ( taxable item sales that is ).  



Anytime you run into a state inspection, the state it will you to show proof that tax-exempt sales are indeed sold to vendors with a valid Seller’s Permit. Unless you had a valid resale license at the time of the sale, you will have to pay the taxes or penalties of the sales without a resale license. Things are that harsh.


For instance, you are located in Texas, and you try to buy wholesale from Pennsylvania, despite that you will not sell in PA, you will need  a resale certificate to produce to the wholesaler to make sure your can re-sell the items purchased wholesale.

Note that in the majority of the cases you do not need to obtain a business permit that is specifically for your type of business.  You only need a general business permit.
