Sales Tax Permits
The Sales Tax Permit is a permit that your State issues you that gives you the right to collect and remit sales tax in your State. Anyone in business should already have this permit.
If you do not have a Sales Tax Permit, click here, then click on your State to apply for one
Beware! There are scams out there that would love to sell you a sales permit at an exorbitant price. Be sure you are dealing with your State government site.
For info on each State, this resource may help:
- select State (click on Select a state for pop up menu to appear)
- enter your Certificate Tax ID Number
- click Choose File to upload an image of your certificate
(maximum image file size is 4MB)
- click Upload
Once your certificate has been uploaded, you will see the info about the certificate at the top.
NOTE: If you reside in Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, or Oregon, your state does not charge sales tax. Contact FASO Support and request that we enable POD for you.
