Do I have to collect sales tax?

Do I have to collect sales tax?

Businesses that have a physical presence or economic "nexus" in a state are typically required to collect and remit sales tax to that state. If you're unsure if your business has a nexus in a state, consult with a tax professional or your state's department of revenue.  We have also included a list below.

Nexus sales tax laws vary by state and are constantly evolving. The U.S. Supreme Court's decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc. in 2018 overturned a previous ruling that a business had to have a physical presence in a state to collect sales tax. Now, states can require businesses to collect and remit sales tax even if they don't have a physical presence in the state but have a certain amount of sales or transactions there, commonly known as economic nexus.

 If a business ships orders to multiple states, it's important to understand each state's nexus sales tax laws and comply with their requirements.

As of April 2023, the following states have economic or physical presence nexus laws:

 Alabama

It's best to be in compliance with all laws regulations therefore it is important to note that each state has its own rules and thresholds for determining nexus.  If you are confused or have questions, consider consulting with a tax professional or the state's department of revenue to determine if they have nexus in a particular state and what their sales tax obligations may be.
