Sales Tax & the Home Business Owner

by Mary Emma Allen on July 31st, 2007

Whether one collects sales tax for mail order and Internet sales often presents a quandry for the home business owner. 

*What if you live in a no tax state but sell to customers in a state where there is a sales tax?

*What if you have a sales tax in your state and sell to someone in another sales tax state?

*What happens when you and your customer both live in the same state that has a sales tax?

*Do you collect sales tax if you visit another state to teach a workshop or give presentations and sell items while there?

These and other scenarios raise questions.

So….visit Kelly, the Taxgirl.  She has a great post about this topic, Ask the Taxgirl: Internet Sales.  Here Kelly will answer some of the questions you may have about the sales tax issue.

    Hi Kelly,
    Thanks for visiting and taking time to leave a comment. I hope my readers will visit you at Taxgirl if they have sales tax questions. That can be a very complex issue. Fortunately, at least so far, our state doesn’t have sales tax.
