Questions and Answers

Can I use my tax Id number to distribute wholesale or do I need another liscence.
Answer 6/13/2014 4:46 PM
If it is a federal tax id no.  You will need to get a sales tax ID also called a seller's permit.  

To buy or sell and distribute wholesale, you will need a wholesale ID also called a seller's permit.   However, you will need to decide first what business structure you will be.  You can be a sole proprietor, an LLC, a corporation, or partnership. Then under that structure, you can register your seller's permit to be able to sell or buy as well as distribute wholesale and sell retail as well. The way that works is that when you buy wholesale, you don't have to pay taxes.  However, if you sell retail, you will need to charge and collect the taxes to pay quarterly to the state.  The clothing tax is called sales tax.   
In addition, you will need to obtain an occupational business license or a home occupation permit and in most cases also obtain a federal tax ID number.  If you will hire an wholesale distribution sales employees, you will also need a state employer ID. 
You can obtain all these licenses, and tax id registrations here online on this site.

what kind of licenses and other things do I need to start a grocery business.
Answer 6/13/2014 4:43 PM
Grocery business is a great business to start.  You will need a business license and also need to choose your type of business tax structure.  For instance, you could file as an LLc or partnership.  Selling Grocery items IS a taxable event and in such case, you will need to obtain a resale license also called a seller's permit and that includes a resale certificate.   Partnerships, LLCs, Corporations, independent contractors, and employers need a federal employer ID.  Employers also need a state employer EIN.   Grocery business  that form an LLC need to file and obtain an LLC certificate and if filing as a sole owner or partnership must also file a DBA assumed business name.
