Does Indiana state tax apply to international digital download sales?

1 0 0

I live in Indiana in the US and have digital downloads I am selling. My state requires I collect tax on them which I have set up and the box to charge tax on the product checked. Will this automatically charge every purchase of the digital download with my state tax percentage including anyone who purchases internationally? I currently have the market set for the digital downloads as International and United States, will this setting charge my state tax for every purchase no matter where the destination or do I need to add more settings somewhere else. I did not set up shipping areas because it is not a physical product.

Hi @njwellness!

Thanks for your question!


I understand that you are in the process of setting up your taxes. It sounds like you have already reviewed your tax eligibility but we can always suggest consulting with your local tax authorities or a tax professional to verify that you charge your customers the correct tax rates, and to ensure you file and remit your taxes correctly. With that being said, you can use our US Tax Registration Guide to help with your tax settings. Once reviewed, we would be more than happy to continue assisting you through our Help Center. To access our live support, you can ask the Virtual Shopify Assistant to "contact support." It will guide you on the next steps to connect with a team member who can provide further assistance tailored to your account.
