Hey there! I have a question about taxes. I live in MS and my online business is registered with MS. When I have out of state shipping orders, it is not charging them MS state tax. Isn’t it suppose to charge them MS state tax? Please help!

Hey @emmiejayes.
 
Thanks for reaching out.
 
I appreciate the context that you have shared with us as that is very helpful! This is a great question. 
 
If you have set up your tax profile to collect sales tax for your location, the tax profile will automatically begin to collect taxes on the products. With that being said, I did notice that Mississippi does collect origin-based sales tax as detailed on our State tax reference. If you're not sure whether you're required to collect sales taxes outside of Mississippi, then contact US state tax authorities or a local tax professional.
 
Let me know if you have any questions.
