What is a resale certificate and why do I need one?Updated a year ago

What is a resale certificate?

If you’re operating from a U.S. State that collects sales taxes you are required to collect sales taxes on sales of all shipments to that state. Without a resale certificate you may run into some issues depending on who you ship to. As a retailer, you should have a resale certificate. 

Is it necessary to submit it?

In case you operate from a state collects sales tax, you will need to submit your resale tax certificate number for the account approval process. 

We are aware that some states may not collect sales tax on certain categories of sales (Ex. Grocery). However, if your generally state does collects at least some type of sales tax, it is mandatory for you to submit your resale certificate number for the approval process.
