Here is the New Jersey information you are seeking. It is direct from the state's tax department's web site:


Sales to Out-of-State Customers

Items that are normally taxable when sold and delivered

to a New Jersey location are generally not subject

to New Jersey sales tax when they are shipped to

a destination outside this State. The taxability of the

transaction is determined by the laws of the state in

which the purchaser or his agent takes possession of

the merchandise.

Contact the taxing authority of the

state into which the items are delivered to find out

your responsibilities under their sales tax laws.

If no New Jersey sales tax was charged on a New

Jersey taxable item because it was shipped out of

State, and the item is subsequently returned

to New

Jersey for use within this State, use tax may be due if

the purchaser was a New Jersey resident.

For more information, see publication ANJ-10,

Out-of-State Sales & New Jersey Sales Tax, and
