Accounting, Payroll & Pension Issues/sales tax / resellers id


Hi, we just started our llc based in Delaware, which doesn't have sales tax. our problem is our drop shippers are located in states which require sales tax and they are asking for a reseller id. do we need to get a reseller id in the states of our dropshippers or just one for the state we live in. where do we get it, how do you recommend we solve our problem. Thank You

I would use the ID for the state in which you are located. You are buying for resell so there would be no sales tax due. Just give them your Delaware number. If you apply for numbers in the other states you will create a nexxus which may obligate you to pay sales tax, franchise tax and perhaps other taxes. You are not doing business in those states simply buying from someone else.
