A Resale Sales Tax Exemption Certificate is an important document that allows a business to sell goods or services without having to charge sales tax. In order to get a reseller certificate, you must meet certain criteria depending on the state in which your business is located. For example, in Wyoming the threshold for nexus (a connection with the state that triggers sales tax responsibility) is $100,000 in sales or 200 transactions.
If a reseller certificate is submitted by the business, supplier, or the provider of service or goods, and it is authorized not to charge any sales tax–the liability of sales tax then lies with the re-seller based on value of final sale.
There are 2 ways of sharing a reseller’s certificate: 1) submitting an existing certificate to the business; 2) creating a reseller certificate on third-party platforms such as Avalara, Tax-exempt etc. The owners of validated certificates lie with supplier and all necessary steps must be undertaken ensure certificate validity.

A Wyoming resale tax exemption certificate allows businesses to buy or rent property or products without having to pay tax. It is good for one year, and businesses must renew it annually in order to continue enjoying the benefits of the exemption.
To make the form valid, the purchaser doesn’t need to highlight any of the bullet points. All that is required is to fill out the form and sign it. The address on the certificate doesn’t have to match the location address of your company. It just needs to include your business name and be up-to-date.
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).
This certificate is also known as a tax-exempt certificate and it must be obtained by the business, that intends to buy products with an intention to re-sell. 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.
A reseller certificate can be submitted by a business. The supplier or provider of the service/goods is not authorized to charge sales tax. If the final sales exceed $100, the responsibility for sales tax falls on the re-seller. Ex. $100 worth of products are sold by business A. The reseller certificate (2A) was submitted by reseller b (2A). No sales tax is charged on this transaction. However, if the reseller sells the product for $200 or more, the $200 sales tax will be added to the final sales.
