Hi there, @malehkaharris13!


Thank you for your post, I'm happy to help you out. Shopify does collect taxes for orders placed on your store (if you've configured your tax settings for the regions where you need to collect taxes) but we do not remit taxes for you. In your Shopify admin you are able to access tax reports which show the amount of taxes you need to remit to the government. I recommend checking out these two help documents which discuss taxes in more detail and answer common questions regarding how to set up your tax settings and how to access tax reports:



If you are unsure of where you need to collect and remit taxes, you will need to consult a tax professional. If you're in the U.S., you also have the option to hire a Shopify Expert who specializes in U.S. sales tax!


Please let me know if you have any further questions about this.
