My name is Miranda Chook, a CPA. Now a sales tax ID number is sometimes referred to as a resale number or a resellers permit or wholesalers ID and they're different terms that vary from state to state. But basically if you are required to collect sales tax, you need to get one of these ID numbers. And this applies if you are a retailer, a wholesaler or you're going to be leasing property and also if you're going to be selling services. This also applies whether your business is in a brick and mortar location, online or even if your store is online but part of eBay. So in order to apply for one of these sales tax ID numbers and for more information, contact your state's taxing authority.
