If you live in the USA or Canada. Most states have a sales tax, but there are a couple that donâ€™t. If you reside in one of these states just let the wholesaler know and they may have a different form or requirement for you to complete. Other reasons why you should get a sales tax ID -
-If you sell online to make money (i.e. You sell more seriously than just getting rid of a few old things from around the house every now and then). You need a sellerâ€™s permit so you can charge and collect taxes, which youâ€™ll pay to your state government later.
-If you want to purchase goods wholesale from a US supplier (and you are also based in the US), you need a sellerâ€™s permit to buy wholesale sales tax free.
Although itâ€™s not necessary for SaleHoo members to have a sellerâ€™s permit and a registered business for them to use many of the suppliers in our directory, we strongly recommend you get one as it will give you access to even MORE wholesalers.
