eBay sales tax

Post  crankbndr on Fri Jan 11, 2019 7:13 pm

I just got nailed for sales tax for a sale to Washington state, I didn't charge the tax so my Im now loosing 20%+
!4% to eBay and PayPal now over 6% to Washington state. eBay is going to take it upon themselves to take my money and sent it to the tax collector.
I will be done with eBay soon and have to sell person to person. Anyone else have this happen? I think right now its Washington but other states are lining up.
No exemption for a small timer like me??

I’ve noticed this, not on Ebay, but out of state sales. I fully expect to pay a tax within my home state, but not outside it.

I can give a political rant about it, but I will refrain. Taxes outside of your state unless you are physically in said state is just wrong.

from one of my listings, the tax part is new. Taxes automatically charged to Washington and Minnesota buyers. Many more states to follow.

I wouldn’t expect anything less from those 2 states. I would expect other costal states and that big I state below me to start that soon too.

The tax is supposed to level the playing ground with  “brick and mortar” shops, you know, since I can just go up the street and buy a Black Widow anytime I want.

The new governor Minneapolis pretty much elected for the state is all about raising taxes, wants us to have the highest gas tax, wheelage tax, increase state sales tax, soft drink tax, plastic bag tax... right now clothing, drugs and (unprepared) food is not taxed but that could change.

We have a $1.5 billion surplus, but supposedly that is out of the question when it comes to roads and bridges, the reason for a higher gas tax...

You know things are going to hell when most polls show legalizing weed as the highest priority this session.

The guy in Washington was complaining about my shipping cost and said he had to pay sales tax to boot.
I shot back i don't charge sales tax and shipping is what it is. Nothing on my end showed he was being taxed.
I use Priority Mail flat rate cause it costs me same from Fla. to Hawaii, I print shipping labels from my computer and no waiting in line at PO.
Shipping other ways I need to measure and weight box to calculate different costs depending on location, or wait in line at PO

Paid NM sales tax for an engine I bought from someone on E-Bay in NM. So far haven't had to pay for sales tax on out of state items. No telling, that could change. Since our industries have been decimated with jobs and goods manufacturing shipped overseas, the tax base is gone, so they are making it up through the other sources, income tax, property tax, sales tax, vehicle registration tax, gasoline tax (on top of it already having sales tax), hotel tax, and etc. They repealed sales tax on food (except deli) in NM, but raised the sales tax on the rest to compensate. I wished they simply left things alone. You are still paying the same overall, no matter what.

And regarding someone being charged sales tax on E-Bay, could this be an E-Bay thing, they collect the tax instead of the seller, then forward to the state tax office, so it is transparent to the seller?

While not a seller or much of a buyer on ebay, I feel for those that pay taxes. My thoughts are that somebody has already paid taxes on these items at sometime. Same thing here as well. We pay taxes on purchases made at local auction sales! Again, somebody has already purchased the item and paid taxes on it!

Almost every State has an on line purchase sales Tax not collected at point of sale BUT on the books that every year you must declare the total cost of all goods and services paid for on line... then you pay the appropriate state sales tax to your state...been on the book in my state Texas, ever since Al Gore invented the internet....most states do not, or should I say did not, collect it

Federal law changed last year as part of the net neutrality changes. The new statute codifies the law that allows each state to demand sales tax from the on line retailer...as stated above, the intent is to level the playing field....for support in favor of Brick n mortar who are at a disadvantage

Living rural, wife and I do a LOT on line----- and I always sought out outlets--- NOT in Texas ---so I could try to beat local prices, with no tax a significant figure for big ticket items, and smart shopping looking for the free shipping deals also

Over the years I bought a bunch, Tax Free, from Cabelas...then they opened stores in Texas...that nice perk was lost

BTW there are simply too many other options for me to sell of stuff...I buy on E-bay a bit but I only sell on free sites...and accept the limited audience

The small time sellers are OK its the buyers they want the tax from. If you are a small time seller like me your OK.
Its my customer that complained of his own state taxes.
