Need to charge tax for products from a California warehouse?

I have a warehouse in California with stock, if I set a US location, do I need to charge the buyer tax? What taxes need to be charged? What percentage is charged? I've looked at many shopify's help documentation, but I still don't get it.

I have set a US location, will I be penalized if I don't set the corresponding tax rate? After I set up and activated the US shipping location and added inventory, the buyer side does not show that they can choose to ship from the United States. Is it my setting wrong? Will the "location" be displayed on the buyer's side and the buyer can choose the shipping place?

Hi there @Arielyif!

 

I'd like to share some info with you here on what we can support you with from here in Shopify.

 

The first, most important point to establish is that we cannot help you to determine your tax liability, and for questions about this or any other aspect of taxation we would have to direct you to consult a qualified expert in your jurisdiction.

 

Once you do know where any potential liabilities lay, you can check how to set up US taxes here on our help site

 

I'd also recommend our blog article here on how to charge sales tax, as well as this one on our sales tax insights tool to learn more.

 

In order to be certain you're aware of your liability, I'd ensure you check with a qualified professional where you are so you can be sure you're set up correctly.
