Sales tax permits are an important step in forming an LLC in the US, especially if you are considered a vendor in the state you choose!
What is considered Sales Tax in Wyoming?
According to Wyoming’s Vender Manual sales tax is “an excise tax or tax on consumption which is applied to retail sales, leases of tangible personal property, admission fees and some services which are subject to taxation per Wyoming law. The purchaser pays the tax to the vendor. Vendors must have a license and are responsible for collecting and remitting the tax to the state.” Many goods qualify for sales tax, so your best bet is to check out Wyoming’s vendor manual for specific details on what qualifies.
Who is considered a vendor?
Wyoming law states that vendors are “Any person who meets the following definition of a vendor must license to collect and remit sales tax. Wyoming Statute (W.S.) 39-15-101 (a)(xv) states: “Vendor” means any person engaged in the business of selling at retail or wholesale tangible personal property, admissions, or services, which are subject to taxation. Vendor includes a vehicle dealer as defined by W.S. 31-16-101 (a)(xviii). Please note that this definition encompasses those who open an online business in Wyoming. If your business is providing taxable products or services, you must obtain a sales/use tax license and follow all statutes that apply to a store front business.”
