A resale tax exemption certificate is required to rent or purchase a property that falls within this category. It is necessary to have this document in order to rent or purchase such a property.
You may have to report any use taxes if you resell an item you purchased. Similar to sales taxes, use taxes apply when merchandise is brought into your state and used there.
When it comes to getting a Montana resale sales tax exemption certificate, there are a few things that vendors need to know. For starters, the vendor does not need to get one from their purchasers- the invoice should already identify the exempt items. The annual resale certification is only valid for items that are exempt from tax based on their use. This means that you can use the certificate to purchase items for personal use and later sell them as part of your business.
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). In addition, the selling dealer can continue to sell tax-exempt products (for example, on a charge account or cash on delivery basis) to this customer.
The initial certificate will suffice as long as all information is correct. There’s no need for you to send multiple copies. These are the things to remember if you want to obtain a certificate exempting resale tax.
Montana is a state in the Mountain West subregion of the Western United States. It is bordered by Idaho to the west; North Dakota and South Dakota to the east; Wyoming to the south; and by the Canadian provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan to the north. It is the fourth-largest state by area, the seventh-least populous state, and the third-least densely populated state. Its state capital is Helena. The western half of Montana contains numerous mountain ranges, while the eastern half is characterized by western prairie terrain and badlands, with smaller mountain ranges found throughout the state. In all, 77 named ranges are part of the Rocky Mountains.
Montana has no official nickname but several unofficial ones, most notably “Big Sky Country”, “The Treasure State”, “Land of the Shining Mountains”, and “The Last Best Place”. The economy is primarily based on agriculture, including ranching and cereal grain farming. Other significant economic resources include oil, gas, coal, mining, and lumber. The health care, service, and government sectors are also significant to the state’s economy. Montana’s fastest-growing sector is tourism; nearly 13 million annual tourists visit Glacier National Park, Yellowstone National Park, Beartooth Highway, Flathead Lake, Big Sky Resort, and other attractions.Source
