Situation: Three individuals, two IL residents and one CA resident formed a start-up reselling cellphone accessories.
We have incorated in WY, will be using amazon fulfillment to ship the products we are reselling.
How amazon fulfillment works is: our corp buys goods from wholesaler/distributor, we leave them on pallets, tag them with an identifier, then ship them en masse to an amazon distribution center. Amazon warehouses them on consignment.
When an amazon shopper buys a product from our link (we simply put links on amazon site under product descriptions), amazon then packages our product and ships it, keeping a % of the price for amazon and paying us the rest.
We intend to do our middleman work from California, but can also ship goods out of IL.
WY Sec of State would like us to give them a physical address for where we are conducting business. At the same time, as part of our formation consideration, we need to get a reseller permit and related state tax
Which state will minimize our need to collect taxes from purchasers, as well as our income tax
burden. Corp is LLC (I understand pass through entities, more a question of any state adding additional tax)
