Contact your state's Department of Revenue to find out the requirements for registering as a legal sales tax vendor. This is an important step, as it allows you to deal with government institutions and bid for jobs that are reserved only for those with tax vendor permits.
Visit your state's official website to download the Sales Tax Certificate of Authority form. You need this form to register as a vendor with your state. You also can search for the form online by typing "Sales Tax Certificate of Authority form" followed by the name of your state.
Give all the details required about your business, including the type of entity (sole proprietor or Limited liability Corporation (LLC)) and the reason for applying (starting a new business, expanding or changing names). You also must provide information about the business itself, such as the legal name and address.
Explain the business's purpose and spectrum of coverage. You will have to provide an explanation of the services or products offered by your company, your business prospects and your goals for expansion or modifications.
File the form with the appropriate governmental office. Depending on where you live, this can be done in several places. Most states have a Department of Revenue office in every large city.
