The state of Maryland has the largest median household income in the U.S. (over $72,000/year) as well as the highest number of millionaires per capita. Without question, there is money to be made in the highly diverse Maryland economy, which is why so many aspiring business owners want to set up shop here. If you’re one of these enterprising types, you’ll need to obtain a number of licenses so you can do business legally in Maryland. For retail businesses, one of the most important of these is a seller’s permit

A seller’s permit is simply a type of business license that enables you to collect state sales tax on transactions. Most states have some version of this license, which also goes by a number of other names, such as wholesale license, resale license, sales tax permit, sales and use tax permit, and reseller permit. In Maryland, it is formally known as a sales and use tax license. 

Obtaining one of these licenses is easy—if you use FastFilings’ convenient online ordering form. Just spend a few minutes typing in some basic data, and your Maryland seller’s permit will arrive in your mailbox shortly.

Who Needs a Seller’s Permit in Maryland?

A business that is involved in selling tangible goods or certain kinds of services needs to have a wholesale license in Maryland if these transactions are subject to state sales tax. Some non-profit organizations are exempt from this requirement.

Bear in mind that out-of-state sellers are also subject to sales tax license requirements if they generate over $100,000 in sales or at least 200 transactions in Maryland. A temporary sales and use tax license is available for one-time events and shows.

Seller's Permit Vs. Resale Certificate in MD

It’s easy to get them confused, but in fact the type of sales tax license we have been discussing is not the same thing as a Maryland resale certificate. While a Maryland seller’s permit lets a business collect sales tax, a resale certificate allows a business to purchase items tax-free if these are intended to be resold. A resale certificate in Maryland is given by the buyer to the seller.
