Can’t wait to get your reseller permit? Now you don’t have to. The Washington State Department of Revenue (Revenue) has made it easy for businesses to view or print their reseller permit, which allows approved retailers and wholesalers to purchase items for resale without paying sales tax.
Businesses can now print their reseller permit directly from their online “My Account” via the Revenue website. Before adding this feature, a business needing its reseller permit had to contact Revenue and ask for a reprint to be mailed.
Now that businesses have easy access to view and print their reseller permits, Revenue has discontinued sending copies of permits by mail.
Businesses with reseller permits that automatically renew should log on to “My Account” and print their new permit.
“This change is good news for our customers and staff, who both said online access to reseller permits would be a time-saver,” Revenue Director Vikki Smith said. “We’ve made it easy for businesses to access and print their reseller permits at their convenience, so they don’t have to wait for a permit to be delivered by mail.”
It’s easy to check if a business has a current reseller permit by using Revenue’s business lookup tool at dor.wa.gov/brd. A mobile version of the tool is available from a link at the bottom of that page.
