Taxes and Fees – Blog Post 5

One insight I was able to learn during this week was the concept of taking money online. I guess I really never thought about how it all worked and the technicalities it took when buying from different states. So, basically an online store collects sales tax from people who are buying merchandise from that state. For example, if I am an online store based in Utah I would charge sales tax to those buying my product in Utah. If, however, I have a customer buying my product in California I wouldn’t charge tax because they are not in the state of Utah.
