What is a Reseller Permit, and why do I need one?

A reseller permit, also known as a resale permit or seller's permit, allows a business to purchase items wholesale and resell the items at retail prices without paying sales tax on the wholesale purchase. 

In California, herbal medicines are classified as dietary supplements and are subject to sales tax. (The state of New York, where Treasure of the East is based, does not levy sales tax on dietary supplements.) Please consult with your own state’s tax department to determine if dietary supplements are subject to sales tax. For further information, please consult this FAQ page from the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration

What do we do with CA Reseller Sales Certificates?

We do not file the certificates with the State of California. We simply keep certificates saved in the very unlikely event of an audit.

To sum up your options as a California-based business owner, you can:

  1. Obtain a Resale certificate and get faster shipping, or
  2. Purchase and continue to receive products from our Ithaca office
