Sales taxes are a very complicated topic in the United States. For people not familiar with them, they are similar to a VAT or an IVA, but there are differences.
What makes sales taxes so complicated is that each state can create its own sales tax laws and within each state, counties and cities can have their own sales tax rates. The highest number of separate sales tax jurisdictions in any state is over 2,000.
Your responsibility for sales taxes varies greatly depending on whether or not you operate your own store, or if you sell through a marketplace like Amazon, Etsy, or Walmart.
We have experts in sales taxes for non-resident owned businesses to make sure that you are compliant.
