The e-commerce.

About taxes.


Recommended Posts



I am going to operate a site in Canada. I will sell to both Canada and US. I have a question that someone with business experience will easily answer.


What taxes should I collect. I know in Ontario, I collect GST and PST. How about other provinces in Canada?


Should I charge any tax on items sold to US customers? Is your answer same for all the states?

It's different everywhere.


In the states, the majority of states say that you only have to collect tax on orders that are shipped to the same state where the business operates.


Consult your local goverment for what taxes you should collect.


NOTE: As of Oct 2006, I'm not as active in this forum as I used to be, but I still work with osC quite a bit.

If you have a question about any of my posts here, your best bet is to contact me though either Email or PM in my profile, and I'll be happy to help.
