Q: Resellers Permit In Southern Grace Designs Reseller?

A: The reseller's permit is called a seller's e permit and you can get it here online.  "Southern Grace Designs," is a trade name and you need to register it with a business name certificate assumed business name. 

Reseller Businesses  need at least a sellers permit.  

This is because all sales of any type of merchandise is taxable. 

     For example, Prince Williams and Princess Kate have a baby girl and start their new life as parents.  However, Snowden, from Russia,  reveals some British Royal Family secrets, the UK crumbles and Prince Williams loses everything. 

     To support Kate and the baby girl, he starts a business on eBay selling royal antique stuff from whatever he has in the new ghetto house he lives in London with Kate. 

Well, if he started an ebay Reseller business in the USA, he would have to become a sole owner, partnership, corporation or LLC by filing a pertinent certificate. Then William will have to get a general business license, and also register the business name with a dba business name certificate also called an assumed business name  ( "We Used To Be Kings eBay Sales," )   if that name is not registered as an LLC or corporation.  

If Princess Kate becomes a Reseller partner, they will have to get a federal tax ID and file a dba, form an LLc or incorporate.  

After setting up with all of the above licenses and tax ID, William can start selling Royal paraphernalia on eBay.Reselling electronics toys and makeup on amazon I'm selling phone cases and would like to sell on the streets of Las Vegas..

You can choose to be a(n) Reseller :

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

Worth Business Tax Registration ( Business License)
All businesses including home, online or mobile BUSINESS need a BUSINESS license because they are BUSINESSES.

A(n) Reseller business using a DBA Doing Business As Trade Name in Cook County , i.e., starting businesses using a company name other than the legal (given name) owner's name, need a(n) DBA Doing Business As Trade Name Registration.   For example, you start a(n) Reseller business and you call it "Ultra Reseller Co". You will need to file a trade firm name for it.

Also, keep in mind that in IL though, a business license and a DBA is necessary for most businesses but if your business sells any taxable items, you will need a sales tax ID number.  (A.K.A state id, wholesale, resale, reseller certificate, about $39 for most states).
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.

If you are thinking of hiring help, you will need a state employer ID and an IRS number employer ID. I.e., a IL Federal Tax Id Number ($29)  and a(n) IL  State Employer Tax Number  

Instead of filing a fictitious business name DBA Filing (about $49 plus state and legal newspaper publication fees) in Worth, Incorporate in IL  or form a(n) IL LLC

If you will set up a corporation or form an LLC, you will not have to file a DBA (Doing Business As) unless your corproration or LLC name will be different that the busienss name you will trade under. Businesses that use the full legal name of the owner as a business name do not need to register an assumed business name. So, for example, your name is "John X Doe" and you use that as a business name.

If you do form an Online Selling Stuff llc or incorporate (about $49 plus state fees for most states) your Reseller business instead of just filing a fictitious business name (dba), it will help you avoid legal and financial personal liability arising out of business transactions and you will not have to register the Worth business name. Instead of filing a Cook County fictitious business name (our service fee includes dba business name filing and legal paper publication) you can elect to incorporate in IL or form an IL LLC (starts @ $49 plus state fee for most states & includes bylaws and LLC operating agreement)..
