Example:

Edward starts a business from home selling stuff on the internet. He wants to buy stuff wholesale and then post them online and sell them retail. To buy wholesale, Edward will need to obtain a seller's permit. The seller's permit includes a resale certificate that will sign and fax to the wholesaler so Edward can prove to the wholesaler that he has a seller's permit ID number that enables him to buy wholesale. For instance, if Edward buys 500 widgets for $1 each, he would have to pay $500 plus sales tax but since he buys wholesale he does not have to pay the sales tax. When Edward sells the widgets online he will have to charge about 8% tax in most states and collect it to pay the government.
