Do you charge/collect sales tax on your sales? I got my resellers certificate have not bought anything for reselling as of yet, but I was wondering if anyone charges and or collects sales tax?

Wow , that is good, I am so used to everything having some type of tax that i have not thought of item not having tax except for food now i am thinking about it. That would classify as food. My daughter had to a report on on India fashion just not too long ago. That was difficult since we have real magazines or information that can be cut out.

i do some selling on ebay and when someone buys from my province (i am in canada), i do actually charge sales tax but that doesnt happen too often. more often than not, the people i sell to are in the US.

I've never had an online transaction that was in the same state that I live in, so I've never had to charge sales tax on my transactions. However, if I understand it correctly, if I was to sell something to someone in the same state that I live in, then I would have to charge sales tax on the item. Additionally, I have a small business selling Tupperware and whenever I make a transaction with that, I do have to pay sales tax on the item that I've sold. It does't matter if my customer lives here in Kentucky or if they live in another state, if I manually enter the order I have to charge them 6% sales tax.

I live in Florida and sell on eBay. We don't have a state sales charge in Florida so I do not charge. however, I heard people are saying soon there will be sales charge on all internet sales. Amazon is fighting this.
