- I want to quickly discuss sales tax.…This is a complicated issue in the United States.…There are around 10,000 sales tax jurisdictions…in this country, so many large retailers have to…deal with thousands of different sales tax calculations,…depending on where they're located.…But what about you?…What do you need to do about sales tax?…Well, Amazon leaves that up to you.…Amazon itself collects sales tax…for almost two dozens states.…That is, if Amazon sells an Amazon-owned product…into one of those states, it collects sales tax,…but if it sells one of your products,…it does not collect sales tax,…regardless of which state it's sold into,…unless you ask it to do so.…
So, a quick lesson on sales tax.…First, you may have heard of the Internet Tax Freedom Act,…originally passed back in 1998.…There's a lot of confusion about this act.…It really has no impact on sales tax whatsoever.…It never did say that purchases could not be taxed,…as many seem to think.…It merely stated that no government,…federal, state, or local, could impose discriminatory taxes…
