I’ve been noticing something very interesting re: sales taxes. Lately, Amazon has been shipping across state lines more and more and no sales taxes are charged. For instance if item X is in both California and Arizona warehouses, they ship item X from Arizona to California customers and vice-versa. In the two day window. We are only responsible for collecting taxes if item X is shipped from a California warehouse to a California customer.
I thought the new internet sales tax law said if the company was bigger than X, you had to pay tax anywhere in the US. Thus you find Amazon charges tax but some small mom and pop e-commerce sites still do not. The threshold was pretty low too, like $1M/year or something like that. I’d ask a CPA/Accountant
I don’t want to get in a sales tax argument, but in a very generic sense, talking about any company out there in the world wink emoticon if they have nexus in CA, it doesn’t matter where the item ships from – it’s taxable WRT sales tax to the person buying it in CA.
