If your California business, corporation, or limited liability company (LLC) will provide, sell or lease any taxable taxable good, product or service, your business must apply for a California Seller’s Permit for each business location before engaging in any sales subject to sales tax. Each location where sales of taxable items are made requires, and must display, a valid California seller’s permit. Consequently, a separate California sales permit is required for each location where sales of taxable items will be made.
To obtain a California Seller’s Permit, the California business, corporation, or limited liability company (LLC) must complete and file a California Seller’s Permit Application with the California State Board Of Equalization. If the sales will be ongoing, the business should apply for a “Regular” sales permit. If, on the other hand, the business will only engage in sales for a temporary period of time (90 days or less), then the business should only apply for a “Temporary” permit.
