Sales tax id number or sales tax exemption certificate is a legal document issued by the state. This certificate of authority gives your business the authority to collect the required sales and use taxes, and to issue appropriate sales tax exemption documents, including resale certificates used for purchasing inventory.

Other names: Sales tax id number also known as

* Reseller permit

* Sales tax vendor id number

* State tax ID number

 

A sales tax or a retail sale is a tax on the end-purchase of a good and provision of services including internet sales. Normally sales tax is levied on 'tangible personal property'; it has to be movable. Intangible property (e.g. stocks and bonds) are excluded.

Sales taxes can be applied to tangible goods like food (in some states), clothing, cars, furniture, household items, and other goods. By comparison, the sales tax does not generally apply to landscaping services, attorney fees, private school tuition, stocks and bonds, real estate investments, and other purchases more typically made by higher-income families.

A seller has to charge sales tax if it has 'nexus' where it is located. Nexus, or physical presence, is established if a business maintains a temporary or permanent presence of people (employees, service people or independent sales/service agents) or property (inventory, offices, warehouses) in a given locality. There is no over-arching definition of nexus, so each taxing locality may define it differently - and many do, leading to endless problems for businesses which have operations in multiple states.

“Bottom Line Employer identification Number and State Identification Number are two separate documents assigned by the federal and state respectively”

Is there a site or information out there that is available to see samples of each state's sale tax number. We host a private trade show and want to make sure the general public is not admitted and we require them to bring along the state sales tax number. However, because each states differs we are unable to really verfiy whether that number is correct or they are just creating a number. If we even would know the format for each state would be very helpful. Can you help?

If you are not collecting any sales tax from a third party, do you still need a Sales Tax number? For example you are letting the client deal directly with the vendor.
Reply : infotaxsquare.com
 

Sharon Kraus;

Thanks for choosing InfoTaxSquare.com for your business needs. You have to follow your state guidelines to collect sales tax. You can't designate or appoint third party to collect sales tax while as per state you are required.

So, please either check your state sales tax guide lines or consult your accountant to avoid penalizing by the state.

I am treasurer to the Cleveland, Missouri Lions Club. We need a Missouri Sales Tax Exempt Certificate. Because we are a non-profit organization. Our money to help those in-need in the community comes from fund raisers throughout the year. Normally the amount is less than $3000.00. We must purchase food, supplies, and other items for the fund raisers. If exempt from the Missouri sales tax it will help our financial situation. Please tell me how I can obtain the Sales Tax Exempt Certificate. James S. Kinney 816-618-3375 or P.O. Box 83 Cleveland, Missouri 64734
