Shopify doesn’t remit taxes on seller’s behalf. As a seller you must know how much you owe, when to pay, and how. The good news is since payments are processed through Shopify’s portal, you have access to reports that make tax time less of a hassle — particularly if you file regularly throughout the year.
There are a number of Shopify sales tax report you have access to. For instance, the tax filing report demonstrated you how much sales tax you’ve collected during specific time frames. Whether you file your taxes annually, quarterly, or monthly, this report can be customized to d you what you need.
And as your online presence grows, so too will your customer base, culminating in an increase in states where you have an obligation to collect sales tax Shopify.
Here’s the reality: growth happens — as do the state sales tax complications and lawsuits — irrespective of your business readiness.
