SALES TAX VENDOR IDENTIFICATION NUMBER

Sales Tax ID (Certificate of Authority):
You will need to collect Sales Tax if you are selling a product or offering a service that is taxable. The process of getting a Sales Tax ID is called obtaining a “Certificate of Authority”.

Your Certificate of Authority authorizes you to collect sales tax on your taxable sales . Once you receive your Certificate of Authority, you are considered to be in business even if you never make a sale or never open the doors of your establishment. It is therefore important that you file your sales tax returns on time, even if you did not have any taxable sales during the reporting period, to avoid being subject to penalties for not filing.

If your business changes its organizational structure (for example, from a sole proprietorship to a corporation, a limited liability company, or a partnership), the new organization must register as a vendor and obtain a new Certificate of Authority for the new business before you begin operating under the new organizational structure. You must also file a final return for your existing business and surrender the Certificate of Authority that was issued to the existing business.

Display your Certificate of Authority:
You must prominently display your Certificate of Authority at your place of business. If you have no permanent physical location, you can attach it to your truck, cart, wagon, stand, or other vehicle or facility from which you conduct business.
