Sorry I had a few typos. Basically in a nutshell we are wondering how to handle added tax to our customers purchase. We are not sure how to go about charging our customers. We are cunfused with how to determine what to charge them.1. Do we charge our customers in all 50 states or just California based on our address of business operations?2. Do we not have to charge customers outside of California?

Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

California is an origin based state as it applies to sales tax. You will charge customers located inside and outside of California sales tax.

If you only have one location in California, then you’ll charge two sales tax rates. You’ll charge your district rate to buyers located in your district, and the California state rate (7.25% in 2017) to buyers outside your district.

The following links contain excellent information you will find helpful:

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
