When it comes to sales tax, Alaska is a little different than the other states. For one, they don’t levy a state sales tax! However, there may be some local taxes that could apply depending on where you are in the state. Another thing to note is that there is no threshold for nexus in Alaska like there is with some of the other states. This means that even if you don’t have any physical presence or employees in Alaska if you make $100,000 or more in sales transactions within the state, you will be required to start collecting and remitting use tax.
If you’re not familiar with what nexus means, it’s basically when a business has sufficient connection (or contact) with a state such that it would be reasonable to expect them to collect and remit use tax for purchases made by customers in that state.
Since Alaska doesn’t have a sales tax, buyers and renters aren’t required to sign an Annual Resale Certificate. The seller can provide the certificate as evidence of tax-exempt sale when buying or renting property or services from them. Some businesses have internal procedures requiring their customers who are registered for resale purposes to present their certificate each time they make a purchase–even if it’s not for resale.
If you are registered to remit use tax, then you will not receive an Annual Resale Certificate because there is no tax exemption allowed on purchases for resale. You will, however, be required to file a use tax return each year reporting all your taxable sales in Alaska.

Certain purchases and rentals can be made without the need to pay sales tax. Some examples are nails, fabric, and wood incorporated into a chair; items which will be rented out as real property or tangible personal property; and services that will be resold.
An Annual Resale Certificate can be accepted by a selling dealer if it has only one owner and no d/b/a. This type of certificate is valid for any type of transaction (store, e-commerce). The selling dealer can also continue to sell tax exempt products to this customer (for example, on charge account or cash-on delivery basis).
As long as you have all the proper information filled out, the initial copy of the certificate is sufficient- there’s no need to send in multiple copies. So if you’re looking to get a resale sales tax exemption certificate, make sure to keep these things in mind!
This certificate, also known as a tax exempt certificate, must be obtained by any business that plans to purchase products with the intention of reselling. example – If you are a business called A, based in the state of Florida, then in order to re-sell goods within the state of Florida then you must obtain a reseller’s certificate. Although a reseller’s certificate is usually valid within the state, there are some friendly states that accept certificates from other states to allow them to do business in their state.
Alaska (; Aleut: Alax̂sxax̂; Inupiaq: Alaasikaq; Alutiiq: Alas’kaaq; Yup’ik: Alaskaq; Tlingit: Anáaski) is a state located in the Western United States on the northwest extremity of North America. A semi-exclave of the U.S., it borders the Canadian province of British Columbia and the territory of Yukon to the east and shares a maritime border with the Russian Federation’s Chukotka Autonomous Okrug to the west, just across the Bering Strait. To the north are the Chukchi and Beaufort seas of the Arctic Ocean, while the Pacific Ocean lies to the south and southwest.
Alaska is by far the largest U.S. state by area, comprising more total area than the next three largest states (Texas, California, and Montana) combined. It represents the seventh largest subnational division in the world. It is the third-least populous and the most sparsely populated state, but by far the continent’s most populous territory located mostly north of the 60th parallel, with a population of 736,081 as of 2020—more than quadruple the combined populations of Northern Canada and Greenland. Approximately half of Alaska’s residents live within the Anchorage metropolitan area. The state capital of Juneau is the second-largest city in the United States by area, comprising more territory than the states of Rhode Island and Delaware. The former capital of Alaska, Sitka, is the largest U.S. city by area.Source
