Hi there,


I opened an online store from USA with the business address of Pakistan. The store is primarily run by a friend. I just handle the website for him. Store works on Cash on Delivery. Do I need to file taxes as I have No monetary relationship with the store?

Hi @Bannuci,


Thank you for reaching out to the Community! I'm happy to provide some assistance with this request, to ensure it gets resolved. 


When it comes to inquiries like this one, it's best to connect with a local tax professional for clarification on whether you should be filing and remitting taxes. We do however, have a great US Taxes document that I'd encourage you to check out, as it touches on this in further details.


Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
