Amazon Seller Conference 2014: A Look Back, Part 1 of 2

It’s been just a week since the SCOE 2014 Amazon Seller’s Conference in Seattle.

SCOE is the Seller’s Conference for Online Entrepreneurs. Each year over 200 Amazon sellers and dozens of companies who make tools for online entrepreneurs (like SellerEngine) come to Seattle to listen to talks by industry experts, learn about what’s new in the world of Amazon, and connect with each other. It’s a great opportunity to pick up tips for growing your Amazon business.

Sales Tax 101: Nexus

Ed. Note: This post is part of our Sales Tax 101 series, created with help from our friends at TaxJar.

The Basics of Sales Tax Nexus

Online sellers must collect sales tax in states or localities where they have “sales tax nexus.”

While all states have a slightly different definition of this term, sales tax nexus is generally defined as “presence” in a state that’s significant enough so that a business has to comply with the state’s sales tax law.

Presence can include – but is not limited to – an office, an employee or inventory in a warehouse.

If you have sales tax nexus in a state that requires sales tax collection, then you’re required to collect sales tax from all buyers in that state regardless from where the item is shipped.
