When I order from AliExpress and ship products to certain states (New York, South Carolina) I am getting hit with a sales tax that is taking a huge cut of my profit. I sell high ticket items and I should be profiting around $130 ....but with the sales tax is brings down profits to $75. A huge loss in my eyes.
How do you guys combat the sales tax from AliExpress when shipping to these places? Do you just set up sales tax for those states in your store?
I'd like to know because I imagine this won't be my first or last time having to deal with this when drop shipping from AliExpress. Thanks.
I had a chat with Aliexpress. Here are the states customers are being charged tax if shipment is delivered to those states. Anyone know how and where to apply for exemption, please advise. I read about Nexus that you have to reach out to individual states for this.
