Another bad guy!

He collected money but didn't pay it. Allegedly. But he didn't go to jail - probation. Man, doesn't anyone go to jail on this stuff?!?

Where can I find certificate information?

Obviously, one resource to find information is the web site for whatever state you're interested in. BUT, if you want a single resource, I recommend the Guide to Sales and Use Taxes from RIA. They have a very useful separate section in each state chapter for state certificate requirements.

One other issue. As a good rule of thumb, the certificate should be from the state where the ultimate consumer receives the goods. So if A in Illinois ships to B in Florida and bills B's office in Nevada, A should get a Florida resale certificate.
