Nevada requires a sales tax permit only if you have a physical presence (sales rep, store, warehouse, etc.) in Nevada. If you do not live in Nevada and are operating an online business, you do not need a tax permit.
If your drop ship suppliers insist upon a permit number anyway, then click on this button and select “Are you registering for a Certificate of Authority?” This certificate is free. Not other choice is needed. After completing the multi-page procedure, you will have a Nevada taxpayer ID. This should be sufficient for suppliers.
This certificate is only available to non-Nevada residents without Nevada employees or without a Nevada physical store front or warehouse. If you have any questions, contact your accountant or speak to a Nevada Tax examiner at 866 962 3707 opt 1.
