   I am a crafter and will be buying wholesale items and selling them online from home and in person I would like to sell them out of state and maybe open an Etsy account? Answer: As a crafter, you will need the seller's permit to sell  online.  





A: Yes, a sellers permit is required to buy your craft materials wholesale and sell them if you sell handmade crafts merchandise wholesale or retail. Users of a trade name will need a fictitious business name filing. For example, if you name your handmade craft business "TLM TRENDY CRAFTS," you will need to officially register that business name. If you don't file a DBA business name, you need to at least form an LLC or incorporate it in order to register your trade name. 



                             Yes, you need to become a business to sell handmade crafts.

                             Thus, you first, select your business structure: Sole Proprietor, Partnership, LLC or Corporation.



                             Then, a sellers permit is required to buy your craft materials wholesale and sell retail  if you sell handmade crafts merchandise wholesale or retail.

                             If you are an employer, i.e., if you hire anyone to help you with handmade craft making, you will need a federal employer number and a State Employer Number.

                             Users with a trade name will need a fictitious business name filing.  For example, if you name your handmade craft business "Crafty but Arty," you will need to officially register that business name.



                              Finally, you have the option of incorporating or forming an LLC for your handmade craft business. We just bought a property that has an existing craft store, and we are interested in selling ice cream out of a stationary ice cream truck. We have filed a fictitious name and are an LLC. Let me start over..


           I just entered the zip code and won't let me continue. I am starting a crafting business from my home in Kawabata County, Mississippi. What do I need? I want to sell my homemade crafts at telemarketers what do I need to do? I will manufacture craft items, sell different type candy,sell wood burning items, and more. Furthermore, I plan to visit and take part in Texas and surrounding states. If you want to see craft items like homemade tshirts & keychains in MS.

     To buy  merchandise such as dollhouses and dollhouses  accessories  wholesale, you need a sales tax ID also called a seller's permit.

  

The requirement comes from
  TN  state legislation taxation and finance statute   that requires you to get a seller's permit.

    The way that works is after you get the seller's permit, you use the resale certificate that comes with the permit to fax or email  a signed copy to the wholesaler, and then you can buy wholesale because the wholesaler will not sell you merchandise without the resale certificate.



In fact, sometimes the wholesaler wants a copy of the original seller's permit certificate before selling you anything wholesale.



    Also, you need the permit number so you can remit the sales tax you collect from your sales in   TN  and other U.S. states.  You also need additional licenses to run your online business.      So you need at least a DBA, LLC or corporation, the seller's permit for that and as a business, a business license and an EIN.



   You need the DBA, LLC or corporation because you need to register the "Minirealities," fictitious business name.  You can do that with a Doing Business As (DBA) filing, an LLC set up or a corporate formation.



     If you hire people to help you, you need to open an employer withholding account and that requires a state employer ID as well as a federal tax ID to pay withholding taxes for your employees.





    

Q: I HAVE MY EIN WHICH IS 9 DIGITS, BUT DON'T HAVE MY SEIN I also have an LLC, but I have no idea what is a SEIN I repeat, I have an LLC, EIN, DBA, all I need is the seller's permit looks like it's working out with you or this is a person to machine conversation. A:Yes, you need the state employer ID and the seller's permit.

Yes, the seller's permit.

An independent contractor is a self employed business person that receives more than $600 per year from anyone of his or her clients.
IRS rule: The client must issue a 1099 form to the independent contractor and the independent contractor must have a federal tax ID. However, even sole owners may obtain a federal ID and use it as a business tax ID instead of using their own social security number as a business tax ID number.
