What is Drop Shipping?

Drop shipping is an eCommerce model where businesses don’t stock inventory but rather purchase items from third-party suppliers who ship directly to customers. This streamlines logistics, cuts overhead costs, and allows retailers to offer diverse products without hefty inventory investments.

How Does Sales Tax for Drop Shipping Work?

Drop shipping presents a unique set of challenges when it comes to sales tax. Instead of a typical buyer-seller dynamic, there are three parties involved in a sale. So how do you make sure items are only taxed once?

Usually, the end customer pays sales tax and the drop shipper provides a resale certificate or exemption certificate to the supplier. But the rules vary depending on which states you have nexus in.

Our team of experts can help you navigate these complexities with confidence. Benefit from our comprehensive knowledge of sales tax drop ship rules by state and let us automate your entire filing process.
