Drop Shipping Questions about Taxes

81 0 144

I have an established business that only ships items from Nevada. I currently only charge tax for customers who reside in NV.


I want to add a drop shipping company that resides in California.


Question 1

With a NV resellers permit and the customer purchases from inventory from the drop shipper in CA, am I or the drop shipper obligated to collect sales tax for a customer in CA or NV or both?


Question 2

After adding this drop shipping relationship, if a customer resides in CA and purchases from my NV inventory and it is shipped from NV to CA, am I now obligated to collect sales tax in CA?

Hi @BradSCJB!


Iris here from the Social Care team at Shopify, thank you for reaching out to us.


I'm unable to provide tax advice as we're not tax experts, however; your best route would be to reach out to a local tax consultant as they would be able to provide a definite answer.


Going one step further I have found 2 local tax consultants, please check them in the following links:


These 2 companies are not affiliated with Shopify, but they both are located in Nevada and have good online reviews.


Hopefully, that helps, however; if you do have any other questions please let me know!
