A. In order to obtain a resale number, you must obtain a Connecticut Sales Tax Permit. The number on the Sales Tax Permit is your "resale number". You will use that number when you buy goods that you intend to resell in the regular course of your business. You will write that number and other information about your business on a Connecticut resale certificate that you will issue to your supplier. Please review our publication on the proper use of the Connecticut Resale Certificate, IP 2009(15), Notice to Retailers on Sales and Use Tax Resale Certificates. To obtain a Sales Tax Permit, visit Applying for a Sales Tax Permit (Resale Number).
