Hi Bob, that will come down to what supply method you are using. For example, if you will be purchasing from a wholesaler, then a tax id may well be required, in fact it's pretty much the norm with any wholesaler to request a tax if before trading with you.

Surplus stock, drop shipping, a tax id isn't usually required to use these supply methods.

Of course, as for you own taxation record keeping, well that is up to you :)

Hi Bob,

If getting either or both won't be too much of a hassle then it will definitely not hurt your business to secure both.

Have a reseller or tax ID will give you the opportunity to work with more suppliers plus it will show suppliers just how serious you are with your business!

All the best :)

Hi cbdstuff,

If you are based in the US or Canada, you can usually get one from your State’s website – just Google ‘Your State + sales tax’. Most states have an online form on their website these days. Most states also charge a small fee. This varies from state to state, but it's usually around $50.

If you can’t find any information online on how to get a seller permit, then just contact or visit your local County Clerk Office.

Hope this helps :)

I'm not really sure as to how long that would last before being cancelled due to no use, but I would double check to see if it was still valid or if in fact it could be reactivated.

Hi Yolandarker,

A Indiana seller's permit is also called a state ID or a sales tax number
and a general Indiana state resale tax numbrer for business.

You might find this link helpful with your resellers ID or sales tax ID application - Link hidden: Login to view
