It would have been nice for KCBS to give advance notice of this. I could have saved $35. I joined last year (and renewed this year) to get the discount prices for an annual fundraiser, so now I'm paying retail and also out an add'l $35. Seems that this sort of info would be worth mentioning to members.

This sucks. I love that place.
I don't know how you guys are just showing your cards. RD must be trained in your area. I always have to print out the coupon in Denver. Hopefully they figure it out. I consider this worth renewing my KCBS.

I got a free TIN from the IRS, took it RD and got a membership - they asked me how many cards I wanted. Didn't require a business license.

I tried it here with just my EIN, but no go, they wanted a biz license.

Guess it matters where you are at.

Those of you who register as a business to get an RD license, are your purchases tax free, or only if you also register for a tax exempt status? If the former, the paranoid person in me says to be careful. If you are buying product for resale (i.e. no sales tax) and not actually reselling at least some of it, your state revenue department may not be happy with you.

I'd also think through things about how you register a business. For instance, in TN, the rules for trailers used for "business purposes" are different (i.e. more expensive) than those used for "personal purposes." That is a big part of why my old team was not a business: I didn't want to have to pay for a business title on it.

Just some things to consider...

This is right off of the RD website...

*Restaurant Depot is wholesale only. To qualify for a free membership account, on your first visit you need to show a valid reseller's permit (business license) or tax-exempt certificate (for a non-profit organization) and show proof that you are authorized to purchase for said business or organization.

I just happen to have cards for a business and for a non-profit (high school football concessions).

Each year the RD asks for a copy of my current biz license but don't ask for the non-profit.

In my county the biz license costs $108 based on my paltry amount of revenue each year.

Your mileage may vary.

You don't have to necessarily be registered as a business in your state to get an EIN:

https://sa.www4.irs.gov/modiein/individual/index.jsp

Apply online, takes about 5 minutes to get a PDF you can use to open a bank account or whatever else you need. Most likely the girl at the service desk will take that and run with it--if not, come back another day I guess.

I sent an email to Steve Farrin (KCBS BoD member) asking if he can provice any clarification on the general KCBS/RD situation.

Same for me. They definitely wanted the biz license.

I pay taxes at RD.

When I set it up, I did not set it up as a reseller, and set it up instead as a private chef (end user) and asked that they tax me so there would not be any issues down the road.

I think we paid about $125.00 total for EIN, business license and stuff for Virginia.

Considering the options for brisket, pork butts, parsley, Cambro, Minor's products, well, there was no options.

Heck, I still have a 50 mile drive 1 way to the closet RD. But, it is worth it.

Out here in Northern VA area, there is no option for brisket except from our butcher and that is up to $3.79lb!!!

Trust me, it is worth it. But, I hate going there cause I am like a kid in a candy store once inside.

My wife says my eyes get glazed over once I enter.

I looked into the NOVA license today. What address did you use for your license? I see if I use my home address I have to pay for an inspection. Any tips you can PM would be greatly appreciated.

I used my home address. The license is not for a resteraunt, but rather a license to do business.

RD told me that any business license can get you a membership. It doesn't have to be food service related. I think the memberships are just to keep the general public from crowding the place.

Also Churches and other not for profit groups can get tax free memberships.

This seriously saddens me. I was planning on getting the kcbs membership tomorrow and draining my bank account on saturday.

Question: my neighbor friends have a construction business and also a tanning business. Is it possible for them to get a memberships and they authorize me and I get a RD card?
