Using PayPal to collect Sales Tax
Sales tax is a state-mandated tax on goods and products. Since sales-tax guidelines vary from state to state, please take a moment to check out the Web site of legal-guide publisher NOLO, which has an excellent state-by-state breakdown of sales tax agencies. To help ensure you’re complicit in your home state, be sure to go to the proper sales-tax agency and familiarize yourself with its procedures and expectations. You may be required to register for a sales-tax license or a seller’s permit.
