Tax Resale Registration
Who needs a State Resale Certificate?
New Texas businesses are required to apply for a Texas Sales and Use Tax Certificate when they are purchasing and selling taxable items or services. To collect sales tax, you must have a reseller certificate. The simplest question to ask yourself is whether you will purchase items and resell them. Whether the item is eggs to sell food or books to sell off a shelf or any one of a million other items, the answer is you will need a sales and use tax certificate.
GOODS: Items purchase with an intent to resell require a Texas reseller certificate. You buy items from your suppliers without paying them tax, and then collect tax from your customers when you sell your goods, and report and pay those amounts to the State of Texas. Your suppliers will require you to provide them with a copy of your reseller permit to allow them to sell you the goods without charging you tax. Your Texas Resale Certificate will also allow you to open accounts with distributors, vendors, or wholesalers
SERVICES: Whether you offer Data processing services, Lawn Care services, Debt collection services, Laundry services, personal services, Security services or many many other services, Texas requires you to register for a State Resale Certificate (also called a Texas Resale Permit) to be able to legally collect and pay taxes.
