Online reseller sales tax question. I sell on the Amazon

Online reseller sales tax question. I sell on the Amazon marketplace as a third-party seller. I pay sales tax on the purchases when I make the purchase to fulfill the order. Amazon might or might not collect sales tax from the buyer. I am considering applying for tax exempt status when I make the purchase from my supplier, but am totally confused on this issue. I don't actually make the sale. Amazon makes the sale, receives payment from the buyer, sends the order to me to fulfill, charges me a fee to see on their marketplace, and then sends me the balance. I don't collect sales tax from the buyer, because they are not my direct customer; they are Amazon's customer. I need some direction on this.

I am a woman 74 years. My husband and I have a automotive

I am a woman 74 years. My husband and I have a automotive business in New Mexico. My husband is alcoholic. And has a girlfriend. Due to his lifestyle, the business has been rundown. I have fought for years to keep it going. Now the business is for sale but the sale proceeds will not cover debts. I would like to divorce. Question - if I do, will the debts carry with me??? and should I file bankruptcy for relief. Also we owe the State of NM 35k in business sales taxes and unemployment taxes. We own a home together and the business property is also in our names. What are my options????

Our company and office is located in Cyprus. We have an

Hi,Our company and office is located in Cyprus. We have an ecommerce website and sell to Customers in the US. Our products are shipped directly from a factory in China to the customer, it's known as dropshipping. We don't keep any stock or inventory. The only connections we have with the US are:A) website server hosted in USB) Toll free numbers from a US companyThe customer buys the product on our website. We send the order details to the supplier in China. The supplier in China ships to the customer.Can you explain the US tax implications.Am i correct in assuming we don't have a nexus in the US therefore we don't need to pay any US taxs?EU Question:We also have some customers in Europe, when the product arrived from China, they pay customs tax on arrival to their government. For Cyprus company, we are well over the VAT threshold. But we still need to register for VAT. Since its drop shipped, and the customers in Europe pays customs tax on arrival, what are the requirements we need to write on our website letting the customer know they are responsible for any customs tax.The longer your answer the better.Thanks.
