HI I'm just about to start a very small business. It seems like some of the stuff I want to sell requires for me to have a TAX ID # to purchase wholesale. I'm not really sure why I would need one. I'm about to rent some space at a local flea market since I don't have enough money for my own place right now. I'm still a college student and don't have a job so I don't claim taxes. Its atleast one of the requirements for a tax ID # and with that I will have to charge taxes. So confusing, PLEASE HELP! THANKS!

If you plan on selling at a local flea market you really should aquire a tax id. Because you will have to file your purchase info and charge taxes on purchases from buyers.

Most local flea Markets require that you have a resale tax ID to sell your products. However most states don't charge for this resale certifcate you can get it free and you file a resale tax return evey 6-12 months. just google your state and you can apply right on line( most states). I live in California and got one within a couple of weeks. Just answer a few question and its done.
