Am I responsible for collecting NY State Sales Tax?


I'm an online retailer based in California. I know that I'm responsible for collecting sales tax from California residents, but am I also responsible for collecting sales tax from customers who are New York residents? Are there any other states I should be aware of?

    In New York, the buyer is responsible for paying the tax. The same is true for Iowa. You'll have to check the other states individually. Just google the name of the state and the words "state government" right after it to get each state's website and then look up "sales tax for online sales."

    Source(s): Look at page seven, paragraph 2 for New York's online sales tax policy. I know Iowa's policy because I'm an Iowa taxpayer.
