What is a Resale Certificate?
A resale certificate is a document proving that you are a legitimate retailer or purchaser and are buying products to either resell or use as component parts of products you plan to resell.
To use a resale certificate, you generally need to be registered to collect sales tax in at least one US state.
Resale certificates are also sometimes called “reseller’s permits” or sometimes just the blanket term “exemption certificates.”
Your resale certificate is generally the same thing as your sales tax permit (sometimes called sales tax license.)
However, in some cases, a state may issue a reseller a separate “resale certificate” number.
