Do I have to register for sales tax?
Yes, you are required to register for sales tax in every state where you meet the physical or economic nexus standards.
What is Nexus?
Sales tax nexus defines the level of connection between a taxing jurisdiction (a state) and an entity (your business).
It is essentially the idea that if your business has a presence in a state, you are required to comply with that state’s specific sales tax laws.
Yonda Tax offers a complimentary Nexus assessment to help tackle your tax obligations across different states
Which states have sales tax?
There are only 4 states across the US which do not impose sales tax – Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, and Oregon.
Alaska does not have a state-wide sales tax but does allow towns and cities to levy sales taxes.
Every other US state has a form of state-wide sales tax.
What is Shopify Tax?
Part of Shopify’s settings is Shopify Tax which allows you to turn sales tax on in relevant states. Once you are registered in a state, you can activate that state in Shopify and automatically incorporate sales tax to your sales prices at checkout.
However Shopify Tax is flawed as it fails to help businesses register for sales tax or file tax returns. If you sell multiple products, the Shopify Tax setup is also rather complicated.
How can Yonda help with Shopify Tax?
By connecting Yonda with Shopify, we will take responsibility of importing your transactions when needed for filing returns or nexus analysis.
This removes the weight of doing so from the business owner and ensures a stress-free Shopify experience.
Which digital products require sales tax?
Digital products are intangible assets that are sold electronically, with no physical involvement. Generally most digital products are taxed across the US.
Services that are considered digital products include cybersecurity, apps, games, cloud models, streaming services and data storage.
Whether these products are subjected to sales tax can vary from state to state.
What are the different types of sales tax?
Sales tax in the US can be split into 3 categories: seller privilege tax, consumer tax, and retail transaction tax.
Seller privilege tax is enforced on retailers when making sales in the state.
Consumer tax is imposed on consumers making the retail purchase.
Retail transaction tax is added to the sales transaction as a combination of the other two taxes.
