    Ecommerce & State Taxes Question...

    ArchBlocks Newbie
      Can anyone give me some insight on how state sales taxes work with an ecommerce business? If someone makes a purchase from out of state my understanding is that there are no state sales taxes to pay, but if some purchases from with your state (business location) then there is state sales tax on the purchase. Is this right? What about international sales?

      Thanks! ~Kevin

          Kevin, it depends on the state, but what you said is correct for most.

          In many taxing districts, you are required to collect both state and local sales taxes on purchases shipped within your business' city/county, the state sales tax only on purchases shipped to anywhere else within the state, and no sales tax on purchases shipped out of state.

          Hope that helps. Welcome to the community and best wishes.
