When you sell or lease merchandise, vehicles, or other tangible personal property in California, even temporarily, you are generally required to obtain a seller's permit, and to pay sales tax on your taxable sales. Sometimes people incorrectly refer to a seller's permit as a resale number or resale permit. A seller's permit is a state license that allows you to sell items at the wholesale or retail level and to issue resale certificates to suppliers. Issuing a resale certificate allows you to buy items you will sell in your business operations without paying amounts for tax to your suppliers.
