Mississippi Seller’s Permit, Wholesale License & Reseller License

Starting a business in the state of Mississippi means you’ll have three million potential customers for whatever you’re offering. As a right-to-work state with a variety of manufacturing and entertainment-related businesses, Mississippi can certainly be an attractive place for the entrepreneur with a nose for opportunity. But if you plan to sell tangible goods here, you will most likely be required to hold a valid sales tax permit.

A sales tax permit has one main purpose—to give retail businesses the authority to collect any applicable taxes on transactions. The tax money is then remitted to the state. Around the U.S., this type of business permit has several alternative names, such as seller’s permit, sales and use tax permit, wholesale license, resale license, and reseller permit. In Mississippi, most retail businesses must obtain one of these permits before they can legally sell to the public. 

Getting your wholesale license in Mississippi may seem to be just another time-consuming hassle you must endure as a business owner—but FastFilings is here to lighten your burden. With our easy-to-use online ordering platform, you can request your Mississippi seller’s permit in a few minutes—literally.

Do You Need a Seller’s Permit in Mississippi?

In brief, any business in Mississippi that is engaged in retail sales of tangible personal property must have a permit. Note that merely having agents or representatives working in the state is enough to trigger this requirement. 

Furthermore, the requirement to hold one of these Mississippi wholesale licenses applies as well to out-of-state businesses that sell more than $250,000 in sales per year here. However, an individual who is involved exclusively in wholesale sales does not need to have a permit.

If your business rents, leases, or repairs personal property in Mississippi, you too are required to hold a valid sales tax permit. Renting hotel/motel accommodations and charging admission to recreational spaces also require a permit. 

Basically, if you offer any kind of taxable service, or sell taxable goods, you need a wholesale license. Not all goods and services are taxable.

Mississippi seller’s permits are not transferable. If you purchase another party’s business, you cannot use their old permit; you must apply for a new one. In addition, you must have a separate permit for each business location you operate.

Mississippi Seller’s Permit Vs. Resale Certificate in MS

Many businesses routinely purchase goods on a tax-free, wholesale basis for later resale. In most states, this requires the use of something typically called a resale certificate or an exemption certificate. It is generally filled out by the buyer and given to the seller.

Does this mean you need to get some kind of special Mississippi resale certificate to conduct these kinds of transactions? Actually, no. The State of Mississippi allows businesses to purchase wholesale items for resale by simply providing their normal sales tax permit data to the seller. There is no need to get a resale certificate in Mississippi—the state does not issue these kinds of permits.
