Sales tax is not required on business to business transactions where the buyer’s intention is to resell the products (rather than use them). A reseller’s certificate is the document a seller needs to prove to the taxing authorities that they are not required to charge sales tax on your purchase. Your local government sales tax authority should be able to provide you with instructions on how to acquire a reseller number in your area.

If you live in Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire or Oregon, this is not required as your states do not require sales tax on ANY transaction. 

For instructions on how to obtain a reseller’s certificate, example of images or a blank form for your state, please visit:
