Does sales tax from Etsy combine with Shopify for economic nexus?

1 0 0

I have an Etsy shop and would like to start a Shopify website. Etsy currently collects and remits sales tax for me on Etsy. I am prepared to do it myself on Shopify but i have just recently learned of economic nexus. This means once I meet certain thresholds I have to pay in certain states. Do I combine my Etsy and Shopify sales totals and revenue totals for this? or just Shopify totals?

Hi @thelovingbible,


I believe that tax authorities in US states will consider all of your sales made to customers in their state, irrespective of the platforms you have used to make those sales. You'll certainly want to keep track of the sales you're making via Etsy, Shopify, and any other platforms you sell on when doing your tax calculations each year. You can find more information about US tax liabilities on our Help Center, but if you are unsure of your liabilities I'd recommend speaking with a tax professional to ensure you are meeting your tax obligations.
