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.
All small, home or web based businesses as well as big businesses must register for business taxes.  When registered, you will receive a business tax registration certificate most commonly called a business occupational license.  However, you still may need additional tax registrations such as sales tax, employment withholding tax and income tax registrations.

You will need a business license, a seller's permit and a dba trade name registration.  If you will have employees, you will also need a federal ein and a state ein.   you can also form an llc and you will not have to file a dba.
