Customer Question
I have a Delaware...

I have a Delaware company that filed a foreign qualification in California. My company sells cosmetic products via e-commerce with no retail stores. I have one office in Irvine.1) We're using Amazon fulfillment center warehouse in Illinois and ShipBob warehouse in New York for inventory storage and fulfillment. We don't have physical offices or contact addresses there. Do we need to file foreign qualifications to those two states?2) All products are shipped from Illinois and New York warehouses. Can we still use "Irvine, CA" as shipping-from address for sales tax filing purpose.

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

If you have nexus (physical presence) in a state, you are required to register as a foreign entity doing business in those states and charge and collect sales tax.

Goods stored in a warehouse for sale constitutes physical presence in the state.

The following links contain excellent information regarding Illinois and NY which you will find helpful:

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
