Dealers, how do you avoid paying sales tax on eBay purchases?

If you have a resale permit, and eBay is made aware of it, can you be exempt from sales tax on coin and related purchases? Do you need to go through an exemption process for each purchase, or is there a blanket policy for all dealer purchases?

    You have to submit your state resale certificate to eBay. Then all your purchases are tax exempt.

    Adding. You may still be required to pay your state Use tax on any purchases made that weren’t for resale where tax wasn’t charged.
