Export Tax

An export is an item that is being sent out the country to another country. Each country has their own export tax, which can vary from no tax at all on exports to a significant tax. Export taxes may also vary on the items that are being exported considered value. There are a lot of questions regarding export taxes, below are a few questions regarding export tax that have been answered by the Experts.

What are the export taxes if an individual exports a car as a gift to someone in another country?

Often times there are no export taxes on a vehicle; there would only be import taxes on the vehicle when it gets to Poland. However if the individual buys the car new, and takes it themselves down to the shipper to be shipped overseas, then the individual would incur local and state sales tax on the vehicle. If the individual were to have the dealer ship the car directly to port, as long as the individual who purchased it did not take possession of the vehicle at all, then there will be no local and state sales tax. Except in New Jersey, where the dealer is required by law to obtain the state sales tax.

Is there an export tax credit for businesses in the United States? If so what is the maximum allowed?

In some cases there is an export tax credit for US businesses that export products. To be able to get the export tax credit the business will have to meet those things required by the Interest Charge Domestic International Sales Corporation. Individuals do not receive export tax credits the same as businesses, but there are some tax credits that may be able to be used, such as manufacturing deduction under Section 199.

An exporter is asking for a Value Added Tax (VAT) number and refuses to send the exports unless a VAT number is supplied, what does the business receiving these export do?

Since the United States does not charge VAT tax, it only charges sales and use tax, the business who is importing from an exporter in another country will need to have the company to which the items are being exported, register for a VAT account in the country being exported from. The VAT is a form of export tax, and the United States does not charge export tax.

What is the export tax on Gold in Uganda?

There is no export tax in Uganda. However it should be noted that that the full value of the gold exported will have to be declared at customs. And that based upon the value and what form that gold comes in, import taxes may be imposed upon the gold that is being imported.

Export tax can often raise questions such as what is export tax. What is the export tax exemption? Is there an export tax in the United States? These questions and many more regarding export tax can be answered by the thousands of Experts.

Recent Export Tax Questions

  • I am US citizen/SubS considering expanding my existing online

    I am US citizen/SubS considering expanding my existing online product sales using Amazon.com to Amazon.ca (Canada). Tax obligations are a concern and difficult to get an answer - no one seems to be want to get pinned down. So here is what I believe to be true from information digested so far. There seems to be 3 areas. 1) I know as the US exporter on record I would pay a GST of about 5% on the declared COGS or cost of goods sold - which I need to add to my selling price. 2) I am pretty sure that by treaty with US that the profits generated that would flow directly from Amazon.ca to my US bank account would only be taxed by the US and I would not owe a Canadian Income tax. 3) Buyer GST/PST/HST are taxes that Amazon.ca is optionally able to collect from the user based on their location/province. If collected those taxes flow through to my US account and are tax obligations owed to the Canadian government. 3a) There is some info out there that Canada would consider someone who sells less that $30KCDN a small seller that is not required to collect GST/PST/HST tax. 3b) The GST paid as export tax can be recouped/reconciled/deducted from the GST tax collected - TRUE? 3c) The service fees that Amazon charge are also taxed and are also considered a deduction against GST/HST/PST taxes owed.. BTW You also need to get a Canadian Business ID before you can export or collect and pay taxes....
    I'm sure there is more to this..... love to hear what I got right-wrong or missed so far.
    OR if no ones knows - any links to advisors who do know???
    Thanks in advance
