Obtaining a Certificate of Authority is a critical step for businesses selling tangible personal property or taxable services in New York State. This certificate, issued by the NYS Department of Taxation and Finance, is mandatory before you commence business operations. It authorizes you to collect sales tax and handle New York State sales tax exemption certificates. It applies to a range of taxable goods and services, including utilities, certain services, restaurant meals, and more. Remember, this requirement holds even if you operate from home.
