Why is my dropshipper's address showing as my store location on Shopify?

Hi all. Can anyone explain to me or assist me in understanding, why does the LOCATION not show as AUTOMATICALLY added, but rather it shows that I added this address back in 2017 while creating my store? I don't recall ever having to physically add my dropshipper & fullfillment vendor's warehouse (Printful Inc) address five years ago when I integrated them with my Shopify store. I still use Printful Inc as my fullfillment & dropshipper and the ADDRESS shown is their fulfillment & shipment warehouse. However, I've never and still do not hold inventory at the given address. All my orders are printed on demand so I'm a bit confused since I've seen this as being a potential tax liability issue. I've tried to deactivate or remove the location but no success. I have never sold or made sales to customers in NC and I don't hold or have ever held inventory at my physical location here in Oklahoma or Printful's NC warehouse location. Also, Printful has always had my sales tax id & permit info on file but Shopify shows a potential tax liability. Can anyone provide some clarity. Thanks a bunch.

Hi, 

 

Im having the exact same issue.

My business is located in Texas and my drop shipper in New York.

Because my business is registered in Texas I have a sales and use tax permit for Texas. According to Shopify, the location should be where inventory is held or orders are fulfilled. However, as a drop shipper I don't actually own the product, so listing the address for the warehouse in New York creates tax liabilities. I have spoken to several agents trying to get an understanding of how this works, but no one can yet give me the correct guidance
