Does Amazon Really Handle Your Sales Taxes?

February 04, 2019

Andrew H. Johnson, CPA and Daniel M. Peisner, CMI

We recently had a call with a CPA that had connections with approximately 2,000 Amazon FBA sellers. He was doing some due diligence after seeing one of our webinars to see what his FBA seller friends were doing about their own sales tax obligations. It turns out that everyone that he talked to in his initial sample was sure that Amazon not only collected the sales tax but also remitted the sales tax, giving them no sales tax obligations. Listen in as Andy and Dan debunk this myth that still continues to create confusion.
