00:00:00 00:00:04 in this video we're going to cover how
00:00:01 00:00:06 to never pay sales tax on amazon
00:00:04 00:00:08 ever again this is going to reduce the
00:00:06 00:00:11 price of every single product that you
00:00:08 00:00:13 purchase on amazon and save you hundreds
00:00:11 00:00:14 thousands or even tens of thousands of
00:00:13 00:00:16 dollars especially if you're using
00:00:14 00:00:18 amazon as one of your sole suppliers
00:00:16 00:00:20 pretty consistently now before we hop
00:00:18 00:00:23 into my computer and i show you exactly
00:00:20 00:00:24 how to do this from start to finish i do
00:00:23 00:00:27 want to stress that this is not tax
00:00:24 00:00:29 advice you should only be doing this if
00:00:27 00:00:31 you have a business and your purpose for
00:00:29 00:00:32 these goods is resale when you buy
00:00:31 00:00:34 products with the intention of reselling
00:00:32 00:00:36 them you are not the end consumer and so
00:00:34 00:00:38 therefore you do not need to pay the
00:00:36 00:00:40 sales tax also if you're new to the
00:00:38 00:00:41 channel my name is brian i run an ecom
00:00:40 00:00:43 company that does multiple six figures a
00:00:41 00:00:45 year in profit and i want to help you do
00:00:43 00:00:46 the same all right so this is the url
00:00:45 00:00:48 that you want to start on if you
00:00:46 00:00:50 obviously don't have this url it's easy
00:00:48 00:00:52 to find you just go to google you type
00:00:50 00:00:54 in get tax exempt on amazon and it is
00:00:52 00:00:56 this one right here the amazon tax
00:00:54 00:00:58 exemption program and that will take you
00:00:56 00:01:00 to a page that looks like this right and
00:00:58 00:01:01 so that what you want to do now is you
00:01:00 00:01:05 want to go through and you want to
00:01:01 00:01:06 select all of these specific states now
00:01:05 00:01:08 you're not going to get tax exempt in
00:01:06 00:01:10 every specific state i think i'm tax
00:01:08 00:01:14 exempt in most but there are certain
00:01:10 00:01:16 ones that i'm not tax exempt for it's
00:01:14 00:01:18 gonna depend and differ state to state
00:01:16 00:01:20 based on which ones you're gonna
00:01:18 00:01:22 struggle with getting tax exempt in and
00:01:20 00:01:24 which ones are gonna be relatively easy
00:01:22 00:01:26 to you i'm gonna show you what works for
00:01:24 00:01:28 me obviously this is just anecdotal what
00:01:26 00:01:30 works for me some of these you might get
00:01:28 00:01:32 done easier if you have uh you know an
00:01:30 00:01:34 ein or resale certificate in a different
00:01:32 00:01:36 state but obviously those are the
00:01:34 00:01:38 prerequisites okay so the ones that i
00:01:36 00:01:40 have a tax exemption um or i have a
00:01:38 00:01:41 resale certificate for my business in
00:01:40 00:01:43 pennsylvania so these ones are going to
00:01:41 00:01:45 be specific for me but chances are the
00:01:43 00:01:47 majority of these are going to work for
00:01:45 00:01:50 you as well and i want to also stress
00:01:47 00:01:51 that the easiest way to do this is
00:01:50 00:01:53 obviously follow my lead here with the
00:01:51 00:01:54 ones that i'm going to tell you you
00:01:53 00:01:56 might struggle with but then just go to
00:01:54 00:01:58 the end of it and whichever ones are
00:01:56 00:01:59 giving you trouble then just come back
00:01:58 00:02:01 to the very beginning you can just hit
00:01:59 00:02:02 the back button you'll see it down at
00:02:01 00:02:04 the bottom once we go through these
00:02:02 00:02:06 little prompts here and then go back
00:02:04 00:02:07 uncheck that one if it's giving you
00:02:06 00:02:09 trouble and then just go back through
00:02:07 00:02:10 the prompts again and redo it all that's
00:02:09 00:02:12 the easiest way to do it to reverse
00:02:10 00:02:15 engineer to make sure that you obviously
00:02:12 00:02:16 get tax exempt for as many potential
00:02:15 00:02:18 states as you possibly can so that if
00:02:16 00:02:19 you're buying and shipping to addresses
00:02:18 00:02:21 in those states you're not paying sales
00:02:19 00:02:22 tax on them so the ones that give me
00:02:21 00:02:24 trouble usually are alaska we're going
00:02:22 00:02:26 to uncheck that one california we're
00:02:24 00:02:29 going to uncheck that one
00:02:26 00:02:31 dc florida um hawaii
00:02:29 00:02:33 illinois always gives me trouble they
00:02:31 00:02:34 have a weird thing with like chicago in
00:02:33 00:02:36 illinois i'm not really sure what it is
00:02:34 00:02:38 but it always gives me trouble so i just
00:02:36 00:02:40 don't check it um and then we come down
00:02:38 00:02:42 we go to mississippi we uncheck that one
00:02:40 00:02:44 new york always gives me trouble as well
00:02:42 00:02:46 we'll uncheck that one south carolina's
00:02:44 00:02:48 unchecked and the rest of these look
00:02:46 00:02:50 pretty good right so ideally we would be
00:02:48 00:02:52 tax exempt for all of these states not
00:02:50 00:02:54 counting the ones that were shipping
00:02:52 00:02:56 products to if our buyer is in those
00:02:54 00:02:58 specific states so we're going to click
00:02:56 00:02:59 save and continue
00:02:58 00:03:01 and it's going to take us to this next
00:02:59 00:03:02 page where it's going to ask us in the
00:03:01 00:03:04 state of colorado do you have a local
00:03:02 00:03:06 tax exemption i would just say no this
00:03:04 00:03:08 doesn't apply to me
00:03:06 00:03:09 here we're going to take where it's
00:03:08 00:03:11 going to ask you like what's the
00:03:09 00:03:12 exemption status status of your business
00:03:11 00:03:15 and why are you qualified i always put
00:03:12 00:03:16 in resale
00:03:15 00:03:18 and here it's basically just showing you
00:03:16 00:03:20 the specific forms that you're going to
00:03:18 00:03:21 need or you know the specific exemptions
00:03:20 00:03:23 you're going to need to get tax exempt
00:03:21 00:03:24 in all the states that you had chat so
00:03:23 00:03:26 just click continue that's just
00:03:24 00:03:28 information
00:03:26 00:03:29 now this is blurred out because
00:03:28 00:03:31 obviously i don't want to show you my
00:03:29 00:03:32 specific business information but you
00:03:31 00:03:33 can see this the the things over here
00:03:32 00:03:35 you just want to fill these out
00:03:33 00:03:37 organization name right what's your
00:03:35 00:03:39 business name organization description
00:03:37 00:03:41 that's always resale business line like
00:03:39 00:03:42 what's your address obviously you're
00:03:41 00:03:43 going to put your address in there and
00:03:42 00:03:45 then and then you're just going to type
00:03:43 00:03:47 your name and authorize sign your name
00:03:45 00:03:49 right here and obviously your your title
00:03:47 00:03:51 is going to be ceo or you know whatever
00:03:49 00:03:53 it is obviously for your specific
00:03:51 00:03:54 business all right so now's the fun part
00:03:53 00:03:56 now is where you're going to fill out
00:03:54 00:03:58 your specific form now the very first
00:03:56 00:04:00 one right here is pennsylvania um i'm
00:03:58 00:04:03 not sure if that's because my resale
00:04:00 00:04:04 certificate is in pennsylvania or if
00:04:03 00:04:07 that's just because pennsylvania
00:04:04 00:04:09 specifically needs a rev uh 1220 i
00:04:07 00:04:11 believe that it's because pennsylvania
00:04:09 00:04:12 because when i do it on ebay they always
00:04:11 00:04:15 ask you for this specific form for
00:04:12 00:04:17 pennsylvania as well so if obviously you
00:04:15 00:04:20 are not you don't have a business formed
00:04:17 00:04:22 in pa then uncheck pennsylvania and now
00:04:20 00:04:24 right here it's going to ask you um you
00:04:22 00:04:26 know what's your exemption type so i
00:04:24 00:04:27 always put resale right here it's going
00:04:26 00:04:30 to ask you the type of business that you
00:04:27 00:04:31 performed i always play put retail trade
00:04:30 00:04:34 then you're going to go down right here
00:04:31 00:04:36 through the prompts for specific states
00:04:34 00:04:37 okay and those are all going to be the
00:04:36 00:04:39 same thing so you're always going to say
00:04:37 00:04:40 okay well if you
00:04:39 00:04:42 this is for me specifically because i'm
00:04:40 00:04:44 in pa so obviously take this with a
00:04:42 00:04:46 grain of salt if you are have a business
00:04:44 00:04:48 in west virginia or you have a business
00:04:46 00:04:49 in wisconsin or vermont or whatever then
00:04:48 00:04:51 obviously you're going to click yes and
00:04:49 00:04:52 go through the prompts there for
00:04:51 00:04:54 whatever the information is right you
00:04:52 00:04:56 should have your ein already and you
00:04:54 00:04:58 should have your resale certificate so
00:04:56 00:05:00 your your eight digit resale certificate
00:04:58 00:05:02 number as well as i believe it's a 10
00:05:00 00:05:03 digit ein number so we're just going to
00:05:02 00:05:05 go through each one of these
00:05:03 00:05:06 specifically so because i have a
00:05:05 00:05:08 business in pa i'm going to say
00:05:06 00:05:09 obviously no for all of these because i
00:05:08 00:05:11 don't have a registration number for
00:05:09 00:05:12 these so i'm going to come down and
00:05:11 00:05:14 click no for all of these and then you
00:05:12 00:05:15 just want to go through the prompts here
00:05:14 00:05:18 right like okay do you have an arkansas
00:05:15 00:05:19 registration number no i do not so enter
00:05:18 00:05:20 one of the following an out-of-state
00:05:19 00:05:23 number which would be your out-of-state
00:05:20 00:05:25 resale permit for your specific state or
00:05:23 00:05:27 your federal identification number which
00:05:25 00:05:28 is going to be your ein okay so i always
00:05:27 00:05:30 go with the out of state if it's
00:05:28 00:05:31 possible there and then obviously mine
00:05:30 00:05:33 would be pa
00:05:31 00:05:35 and i would type in
00:05:33 00:05:37 my pa sales tax license number and then
00:05:35 00:05:38 i would do this is like an eight-digit
00:05:37 00:05:40 number that you should get obviously
00:05:38 00:05:42 through from the irs once you go through
00:05:40 00:05:44 and you file for your resale certificate
00:05:42 00:05:45 so that's always going to be the same
00:05:44 00:05:47 eight-digit number and then the same
00:05:45 00:05:50 thing for georgia here
00:05:47 00:05:51 obviously i have an out-of-state number
00:05:50 00:05:54 it's going to be pa
00:05:51 00:05:56 because that's where my my ein is from i
00:05:54 00:05:57 have the pennsylvania sales tax license
00:05:56 00:06:00 number which again is going to be that
00:05:57 00:06:02 same eight digit number uh right there
00:06:00 00:06:05 this is not your ein this is your retail
00:06:02 00:06:07 uh certificate number okay and then for
00:06:05 00:06:09 every single one of these right here in
00:06:07 00:06:11 this top bracket where it goes through
00:06:09 00:06:13 like all the way down to wyoming for me
00:06:11 00:06:15 specifically it's going to be the same
00:06:13 00:06:16 thing right no you don't have a number
00:06:15 00:06:19 out of state number whatever your state
00:06:16 00:06:22 is and then your uh your retail
00:06:19 00:06:24 certificate number in there right here
00:06:22 00:06:26 for uh massachusetts specifically
00:06:24 00:06:27 obviously that's not an option to give
00:06:26 00:06:30 the resale certificate so you need your
00:06:27 00:06:32 federal ein so go federal employer
00:06:30 00:06:34 identification number obviously okay so
00:06:32 00:06:37 it's nine digit i said ten i'm corrected
00:06:34 00:06:39 so enter your ten digit uh federal ein
00:06:37 00:06:41 this is with no dashes so usually when
00:06:39 00:06:43 you get a federal ein it's gonna be like
00:06:41 00:06:45 two numbers a dash and then seven more
00:06:43 00:06:47 numbers so make sure you take the dash
00:06:45 00:06:49 out and put all nine numbers in there
00:06:47 00:06:50 right and then when it asks you to
00:06:49 00:06:52 describe the property that you're going
00:06:50 00:06:54 to be selling it's always tangible goods
00:06:52 00:06:56 and services for resales already always
00:06:54 00:06:58 in there since i'm not selling services
00:06:56 00:06:59 i just delete that i just say tangible
00:06:58 00:07:01 goods for resale and then i move on all
00:06:59 00:07:04 right now i'm engaged i read and
00:07:01 00:07:05 registered as a retailer that's what
00:07:04 00:07:07 we're doing here
00:07:05 00:07:08 describe generally the property you're
00:07:07 00:07:10 going to be purchasing again that's
00:07:08 00:07:12 tangible goods for resale and then the
00:07:10 00:07:14 same thing goes with all these but i
00:07:12 00:07:16 believe it's going to be ein
00:07:14 00:07:18 so oh no it's not so same thing as the
00:07:16 00:07:20 ones above right here so do you have an
00:07:18 00:07:23 alabama registration number
00:07:20 00:07:24 no i do not but i do have a pa one
00:07:23 00:07:26 um and then you're just going to put in
00:07:24 00:07:27 your resale certificate so most of the
00:07:26 00:07:29 time it's going to be out of state
00:07:27 00:07:30 number is it's going to let you put out
00:07:29 00:07:32 a state number in and then you can
00:07:30 00:07:34 select your your estate and put your uh
00:07:32 00:07:35 resellers license number in there like i
00:07:34 00:07:37 said every once in a while you'll click
00:07:35 00:07:39 one of these when you say no like idaho
00:07:37 00:07:41 for example where it'll ask you to put
00:07:39 00:07:43 your ein in and then in this case you
00:07:41 00:07:45 want to look for the examples right if
00:07:43 00:07:48 it doesn't have an example and just ask
00:07:45 00:07:50 you to put your ein in there put it nine
00:07:48 00:07:52 put all nine digits without a dash if it
00:07:50 00:07:53 gives you the example like it does here
00:07:52 00:07:55 with the dash then you want to include
00:07:53 00:07:57 the dash in there okay so that's just a
00:07:55 00:07:59 little distinction that tripped me up in
00:07:57 00:08:00 the beginning something that stupid is
00:07:59 00:08:01 literally what tripped me up and
00:08:00 00:08:02 wouldn't let me get it to submit it so
00:08:01 00:08:05 just make sure you're going through
00:08:02 00:08:06 slowly each one always click no or
00:08:05 00:08:08 obviously yes if you have that and then
00:08:06 00:08:11 input your your state if you have that
00:08:08 00:08:13 state if you don't click no always go
00:08:11 00:08:14 for the out of state number first if it
00:08:13 00:08:15 doesn't let you do that then go federal
00:08:14 00:08:18 ein
00:08:15 00:08:20 and if it's federal ein either put all
00:08:18 00:08:22 uh nine digits in there if there's no
00:08:20 00:08:24 example of a dash or all nine digits
00:08:22 00:08:26 with the dash after two if it shows you
00:08:24 00:08:28 the example now right here it's going to
00:08:26 00:08:30 be tangible personal property for resale
00:08:28 00:08:31 as we move down it's going to be the
00:08:30 00:08:33 same thing right do you have a virginia
00:08:31 00:08:36 registration number no i have an out of
00:08:33 00:08:37 state for pa here's my resellers license
00:08:36 00:08:39 number are you doing business under any
00:08:37 00:08:42 other name i'm not you might be if you
00:08:39 00:08:43 are obviously and you have a dba then
00:08:42 00:08:45 click yes and put your name in there i
00:08:43 00:08:47 do not so then after that we're going to
00:08:45 00:08:49 click save and continue ultimately this
00:08:47 00:08:53 is just what works for me and how i get
