Hi Megan, I am wondering what my tax obligations are: I am a proprietary limited company based in Australia trading on Amazon US. My products are shipped from China directly to Fulfilled by Amazon warehouses in Tennessee and New Jersey before being shippeddirectly to US purchasers. It is a very small business with 80 units ( retailing at approx USD 12.99 each) sold so far - about half from each warehouse. I began trading on Amazon in December 2014 and have only recently realised I may need to pay tax on productsshipped from FBA warehouses. I would appreciate your advice. Best regards, Angela
