I live in New Hampshire and i was wondering what kind of paperwork i would need to buy from a wholesaler. I was looking at and the "Resellers'/Tax ID Required" is checked. As far as i know i don't need to collect taxes or have a reseller form to sell things on ebay. So if i called or emailed them to try to buy something would i need this paperwork or could i just say i live in NH?

Although you don't strictly speaking have to have a tax id# to sell on eBay, some suppliers are going to require it. As you mentioned, being in a sales tax-free state more or less obvious the purpose of resale certificates, so I doubt that New Hampshire has a whole office dedicated to keeping track of businesses from which it isn't going to be collecting revenue.

A tax id# is extremely easy to get -- just hit the IRS website (Link hidden: Login to view) and follow the instructions.
