        Answer: According to
What GA sales tax law, you will need a seller's permit AKA sales tax ID to sell merchandise for your Online Selling.

To buy  Merchandise and  accessories  wholesale, you need a sales tax id also called 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.

Then you need the permit number so you can remit the sales tax you collect from your sales on Amazon and eBay.  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.

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.


You can choose to be a(n) :

  • Sole Proprietor,
  • LLC,
  • Corporation or
  • Partnership.
    After you decide and select your business entity, you need licensing.

Seller's Permit

Note: All businesses need a federal tax ID number except sole proprietors that are not employers and are not independent contractors.
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.
However, all other licenses that apply to sole proprietors as discussed here are requited regardless of getting a federal tax ID number.

I.e., a Federal Tax Id Number ($29) ย and a(n) ย State Employer Tax Numberย ย
