Wholesale Myth: Do I Need A Business License Or Tax ID?
by Joaquin Reveron of videogamesmystery.com

One of the myths that is still prevailing in the wholesale business is the "business license and tax I.D need" in order to achieve wholesale success. It is a big mistake to get such an opinion as a fact and then making such message viral all across the Internet.

First of all, getting a business license ID is a true necessary step to make when you plan to incorporate your wholesale or reselling business.

However, there is no need to get a business license when there are many wholesalers and distributors that can cut you deals for wholesale merchandise in single or in bulk amounts legally.

There are different laws that regulate the reselling and wholesale business in many states in the USA, however, that is not an implication that you need a business license to sell wholesale merchandise.
