Pennsylvania can boast of a gross state product that exceeds $800 billion, which is enough to give it the sixth highest GSP in the entire U.S. There is quite a lot of business activity in the state, and there’s no doubt that it’s a good place to start a retail company. Before you can sell or rent anything to the public, though, you need to ensure that you have all the necessary business licenses in place—including a seller’s permit. This permit is necessary to collect sales tax on retail transactions that take place anywhere in the state of Pennsylvania.
In Pennsylvania, a seller’s permit is usually called a sales tax license or a sales/use tax license. In other states, this type of permit goes by various other names, including wholesale license, sales and use tax permit, sales tax permit, resale license, and reseller permit. Under any name, this permit has the same function—it grants you the authority to charge sales tax and pass it along to the state. At FastFilings, you have access to an easy-to-use ordering system that enables you to request one of these Pennsylvania wholesale licenses by spending just a few minutes typing in some basic information in our online form.
Which Businesses Need a Reseller Permit in Pennsylvania?
In general, businesses that are engaged in the sale or rental of tangible personal property, or perform taxable services, are required to maintain a wholesale license in Pennsylvania. Certain installation and repair services performed on real estate are exempt from sales tax.
Your Pennsylvania seller’s permit, or sales tax license, has to be renewed every five years. It should be displayed in a conspicuous place at your business site.
Seller’s Permit Vs. Resale Certificate in PA
While a Pennsylvania seller’s permit authorizes you to collect sales tax, a Pennsylvania resale certificate has a different purpose, and the two types of licenses should not be confused with each other. A resale certificate in Pennsylvania—known as a Pennsylvania Exemption Certificate (REV-1220)—gives you the right to purchase wholesale items tax-free if they are intended for resale. In these tax-free transactions, the Exemption Certificate is filled out by the purchaser and delivered to the vendor selling the items.
