Hi, Using your home states local website is the best and cheapest way to get your reseller permit. You will see lots of websites offering to provide the forms and 'help' you apply for the permit for a small fee. DON'T use them. Your states form will be quite simple and only take about 5 minutes or less to fill out. In my state the cost of the permit is $15. I've not seen it higher than $25 in any state.
One thing to look for on the form is the catagory listings. Some states require different permit catagory numbers on the permit. Such as, 0123-clothing, 01234-cosmetics. You want to be sure that you select, (or click) each of the catagories that you want listed with the state. Not all states have this, but you want to check your form just in case your state does. My particular state does. You still only get one permit, but the catagory number are kept on file with the state. I was told the reason for this is that some manufactors and wholesale companies check your permit number when you apply for an account to buy from them. The state then affirms that you are permitted to buy in that catagory..Good Luck..gulfy13
