Resale Certificates For Tax Exempt Purchases (US Only)
To continue facilitating tax exempt purchases in the states in which you are reselling our merchandise, Items of Interest must have on file the appropriate completed state Resale Certificate forms when you place an order online or through a representative. Although you may have already sent us a copy of your (re)seller’s license or permit, state authorities also require us to keep a complete copy of your signed Resale Certificate and/or Permit on file. To ensure that no sales tax is charged on future purchases intended for resale, please fill out your state’s Resale Certificate, available at their Tax Department website.
Note that we are required to charge sales tax on all of your business purchases in instances where we have not received a completed and signed Resale Certificate and/or permit as required. If you have further questions, please call 718.404.9185. We very much appreciate your cooperation, and look forward to your continued business.
