Hi,
I'm new to dropshipping and I read in the training here on the SaleHoo website that one should acquire a "tax ID" just in case the dropshipper requires one for you to do business with them. But when I do a Google search on "acquiring a Tax ID", I get the choices of either a "federal tax ID" or a "state tax ID". Which one should I apply for?
Thanks,
Thomas Arillotta

Any tax id will be fine Arillotta, it's just to prove you are a legal trader.

Hi anvu and welcome to the forum,

No issues at all, you can still purchase as before, only difference is that you will be able to open accounts with wholesales and dropshippers that require a business tax id.

Hi, this is Kamal and I'm new to drop shipping and I want to obtain a tax id but I really confused with different types of ids out there.
Can somebody provide me a link that would direct me to the exact page where I can fill out the form? Any help will be highly appreciated. I'm in Georgia by the way!

Thank you in advance!

Kamal,

Hi Geir and welcome to the forum,

No issues at all, you can dropship from anywhere. All you need is a supplier that ships to your customer's location. Regarding tax licenses, this is mostly for US residents buying from US suppliers only.
