Why would you want to launch a business in Massachusetts? There are several reasons why, not the least of which is the fact that the state has the third-highest per capita income in the nation. People have a lot of money to spend here, which makes it a desirable area for the aspiring entrepreneur. If you plan on selling tangible goods in the state, however, you’ll probably need to obtain a seller’s permit. This is a type of license that enables you to collect sales tax on retail transactions.
Seller’s permits are known by a dizzying variety of other names as well: sales tax permit, sales and use tax permit, wholesale license, and reseller permit. In Massachusetts, they officially call it a Sales and Use Tax Registration Certificate. All these are names for a special license you are required by law to have to sell goods in the state.

Seller’s Permit Vs. Resale Certificate in Massachusetts
Here’s a topic that tends to confuse people. Your Massachusetts seller’s permit is not the same thing as a resale certificate. Although the names are similar, they have different functions. A Massachusetts resale certificate grants the right to buy goods tax-free on the condition that they are resold later. It is filled out by the buyer in the transaction and given to the seller. In Massachusetts, this document is known as a Sales Tax Resale Certificate (Form ST-4).
