Business name registration is not compulsory to get reseller permit:

It is not required to incorporate the business name to get a sales and use tax permit unless a business name is used to advertise a business. A business name is registered with the county or state under a legal entity structure such as a corporation, limited liability company and an assumed name.

Whether a business is initiated under personal name or business, the owner is personally liable to collect and pay sales tax to the department of revenue. Department of revenue encompasses sales tax liability to all business owners as per their own in the business.
