I can't find the answer to this question. I wrote to the state of Indiana, but they were completely unclear and didn't answer my question.

Do you have to charge sales tax just because you live in a state even if your business doesn't have a physical presence? (no office/no rented space/no employees/no tax deductions for these things).

Hi @amibrain,

Hyde here from Shopify.

Great question! While we are not tax experts, we do have some tax information that may prove useful:



Indiana is a destination state, meaning you charge taxes depending on the state that you are selling to. Shipping is also taxable:


You can follow our set-up guide here:


 However, if you're still uncertain as to your tax status, you would be best off consulting a local tax professional.

I hope this helps!

All the best, Hyde.
