Resale Certificates For Tax Exempt Purchases (US Only)
To continue facilitating tax exempt purchases in the states in which you are reselling our merchandise, Williams-Sonoma, Inc. must have on file the appropriate completed state Resale Certificate forms when you place an order online or through a dedicated Trade Representative. Although you may have already sent us a copy of your (re)seller’s license or permit, state authorities also require us to keep a complete copy of your signed Resale Certificate and/or Permit on file. To ensure that no sales tax is charged on future purchases intended for resale, please complete the following steps:
1. Download all applicable Resale Certificates for each state* in which you are a reseller by clicking on the appropriate state name below (note that these forms have been pre-populated with Williams-Sonoma, Inc.’s proper seller listing):
*For resellers in Florida, please provide a copy of your signed Annual Resale Certificate.
For resellers in Oklahoma, please provide a copy of your Sales Tax/Exemption Permit.
For resellers in Mississippi, please provide a copy of your Sales Tax Permit.
For resellers in Washington, please provide a copy of your reseller permit.
2. Print, complete, and sign each Resale Certificate (and/or Permits) from Step 1 above.
3. Fax all pages of completed Resale Certificates and/or Permits to (702) 804-9005. Please include your name, company name, and membership ID on the cover page. Only one set of documents is required per firm.
To receive tax exemption when shopping in our stores, please present a copy of your signed Resale Certificate or Permit to an associate.
Note that we are required to charge sales tax on all of your business purchases in instances where we have not received a completed and signed Resale Certificate and/or permit as required. If you have further questions, please call (888) 837-4888. We very much appreciate your cooperation, and look forward to your continued business.
