Can you guys explain why used items are being double taxed? The items sold on
Bricklink were already taxed. Why are you then charging a second tax on the same
item?

When you look at ecommerce models such as eBay, there is no distinction between
used and new in terms of tax. The shipping charges in many states are also taxed.
So it's not really about the item itself, it's more of the value that
is being transferred to the customer. In fact, some of the sales tax in the US
is technically considered a "use" tax.

For businesses who buy new LEGO to resell, they would have to buy from a channel
that allowed them not to pay tax. But I don't believe you can do this with
any purchase from S@H. It is considered a B2C (Business to Consumer) outlet exclusively.

Bricklink is not charging you, the states that mandate taxes charge you, Bricklink
is only trying to comply with these laws.
Moreover, this is something that at some point all online sellers will have to
comply with so sellers are fortunate that bricklink is taking a big quarterly
pain in the behind. (speaking from experience of a seller who is only mandated
to charge state taxes in one state but will soon be required to do so in most
states.)

This is going to be the way that all online sales are going to be required to
operate in the future, Bricklink is wisely trying to preemptively be prepared
for these future changes and prevent all sellers here (big and small) to be caught
with their metaphorical pants down and be unprepared for these future changes.

So currently, some buyers (us included) are not able to use all their payment
methods (mainly paypal credit card) when checking out on BL onsite orders; therefore
they opt for manual 'offsite' payment.

Will you be able to unlock that option for buyers to be able to use paypal credit
card on onsite transactions?

that is the only obstacle our shop has to mandating onsite payment on all our
transactions and the only reason we give buyers the offsite option.

It seems like the only onsite transaction we're able to use the PP credit
card is to pay our monthly fees to Bricklink- if would it be possible to activate
it on onsite orders it would be a fantastic outcome, specially in light of BL
having to mandate onsite payments on transactions where taxes have to be collected.
Thanks for listening.

How is this different than using Stripe? I believe Stripe will work with any
credit card, even one issued by PayPal.

I have no idea as i have never used stripe but when i log in to pay via paypal,
it usually shows me all available payment methods on every transaction EXCEPT
onsite orders on bricklink where it only allows me to use all methods except
PP our credit card.
Perhaps it's due to how Bricklink has set it's marketplace transactions
with paypal or perhaps there is another way to make it available and another
user here can shed light on how buyers can activate this payment option to work
on onsite orders.

Apologizes in advanced if this has been discussed, but will Bricklink allow US
based sellers who have a sales tax id provide that to be exempt from paying sales
tax on items we purchase that ultimately will be for resale on the site?

For example, I have 30 parts I buyer to complete a few sets and figures that
will be resold on the site. These items should be exempt from sales tax on
this purchase, then taxed when I resell them.

If this works the same way it does on eBay, I have no problem with this. I am
100% IC at this point (both here and elsewhere). My concerns are …

1. As I have a Florida reseller ID number/certificate, I both collect and remit
for Florida, and the venue handles the other states (because I have no nexus
in those states).

2. The venue (BL in this case) does nothing that effects my settings at PayPal
about which payments I accept and which ones I do not accept (e.g. cross border).

3. The payments (less the S&U tax collected) still arrive in my PayPal account,
as they have done for the past 19 years.

That's all, and I'm actually happy to see this.

I think we're all seeing these changes across the global market. I have
many theories, but in general, just about every country is repealing so-called
"tax free" sales. Admin Russell alluded to this when he mentioned that taxing
authorities are essentially asserting the collection of "use" tax.

Although I have seen one or two authorities even charging B2B transactions, under
the guise of "property (exempli gratia "inventory") taxes", most are turning
to a customer supplied revenue stream.

I'm not wholly opposed to the idea, I'm just not convinced these programs
have been fully thought out. Even though these "new" taxes are still in their
infancy, I have already spoke to "tax and spend" politicians who are eyeing even
"person-to-person" sales of personal property (even family member-to-family member)
- it's not much different than the sale of used items on ebay or at a garage
sale, is their rationale...

I do feel for the folks, like BL, who have taken on the work, it is a minefield
and monumental amount of effort to submit the returns. It is also a great deal
of work for "downstream" authorities, like cities, to ensure they are getting
the right distributions from their state agencies.

*The only statement I find disconcerting, both in the new policies and commentary,
is that BL will "absorb" the costs of the outside tax calculator and management.
If this is essentially the same services I'm familiar with, their charges
are similar to credit cards - fixed fee plus a percentage. With that in mind,
I don't foresee this as a sustainable model and suspect there will be a rescheduling
of fees in the near future. Like with my clients, faced with similar compliance
issues, we'll see a resurgence of the age old question of how COGS and pricing
should be calculated. In the end, it's all about trying to maintain a customer
base that is constantly assaulted by increasing government redistribution.*

I was under the assumption that sellers only had to collect tax in their own
state (which I do)and were exempt from collecting tax unless the sales exceeded
$100,000 or 200 sales per state.

On June 21, 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its decision in South Dakota
v. Wayfair, Inc., addressing South Dakota’s economic nexus law. This decision
overruled the physical presence rule for sales tax nexus for sales made over
the internet. States now have right to require tax collection from online retailers
and other remote sellers that do not have physical presence in their states.
Looking strictly at the South Dakota economic nexus legislation addressed in
the case, South Dakota’s law minimizes the burden on online and out-of-state
sellers. The legislation provides a safe harbor for small sellers: a remote
seller must make in-state sales exceeding $100,000 or makes 200 or more separate
sales transactions in the previous or current calendar year for the nexus provision
to apply.
The legislation also ensures that the nexus provision does not
apply retroactively.

I don't make anywhere near $100,000, I collect from and remit to my state,
but now I will have to pay additional fees (paypal and BL) on the tax money collected
by BL from out of state customers. And taxing shipping fees is ridiculous.

This is my sole source of income during the covid pandemic and it my be pennies
out of my pocket each month but those pennies add up. Shame LEGO Corp, Shame.

While my earlier response addressed only the current conditions on BL, and ever
so lightly on the law, you raise an interesting point that I'll address,
now:

  I was under the assumption that sellers only had to collect tax in their own
state (which I do)and were exempt from collecting tax unless the sales exceeded
$100,000 or 200 sales per state.


As I stated before, there are some issues with the "laws" and whether it is being
applied correctly or not, however, it does ignore one very big important law:
the Constitution.

While there are several SCOTUS decisions over the last 50 years dealing with
interstate commerce, recent decisions are debatable as South Dakota v Wayfair,
very simplistically, conflated the long held idea that states could not tax extraterritorial
sales, which ironically, was a factor to the Civil War.

Just like interstate highways provide for interstate commerce, the internet is
held in parallel and treated like catalog sales (though you've probably seen
taxes applied there, as well), and cannot be taxed by the individual states under
the Constitution and current law - to include "use" tax.

SCOTUS has also held that a State's authority to enact laws that reach out
and place an "undue burden" on out-of-state sellers, is unConstitutional.

SCOTUS has also long held that Congress has the Constitutional power to deal
with this matter; to date, Congress really still hasn't.


  
On June 21, 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its decision in South Dakota
v. Wayfair, Inc., addressing South Dakota’s economic nexus law. This decision
overruled the physical presence rule for sales tax nexus for sales made over
the internet. States now have right to require tax collection from online retailers

sales transactions in the previous or current calendar year for the nexus provision
to apply.
The legislation also ensures that the nexus provision does not
apply retroactively.



At the end of the day, SCOTUS punted (and rightfully so), Congress has failed
to act, and the States are taking advantage of this indecisiveness.

One of the Congressmen I spoke to, basically affirmed this is a ticking time
bomb, that essentially it's politics as usual; meaning: the federal government
will just ignore the crimes of the States until it becomes "too big" to undo
and then they'll write a federal law to make it all legal, and probably expand
the overreach.

James

BTW - The SCOTUS decision is relatively short, only 40 pages. Chief Justice
Roberts wrote the dissenting opinion and summarized this very well, though it
took him about 5 or 6 pages, I think, as compared to my couple of paragraphs.
And on an interesting note, CJ Roberts was joined by three Liberals; talk about
an ideological shocker!

Bricklink is considered a Marketplace Facilitator. Several states have enacted
laws that require the Marketplace Facilitator to collect taxes even if none of
the merchants exceed the limits you are referring to. Don't blame Lego Bricklink,
they have to comply with the law whether they agree with it or not.

Bricklink was going to be required to pay the taxes and VAT or face fines whether
Lego bought them or not. It was on the radar of many states already. The fact
that Lego purchased Bricklink knowing they would have to handle the taxes and
VAT speaks positive of their intent for the site. They could have decided they
didn't want to deal with the complexities.

The taxes do not come out of your pocket if you are a seller to someone in the
US they are paid by the buyer. As a buyer from one of the states I've already
accepted the fact that I'm going to have to pay taxes on everything I purchase
no matter the origin.

However I do think PayPal is being exceedingly greedy. They should only be charging
their fee on the price of the goods and shipping not the sales tax or VAT.
If you look at the history of changes to their fees and rules there is an interesting
correlation with the Marketplace laws being enacted by states. Almost as though
they know many people selling on marketplaces don't have a choice but to
use them. Almost like they are printing Monopoly money.

Can you please confirm that all sales of sellers within the EU will pay VAT,
even when the items have been purchased with VAT, from Lego, and are secondhand?
This means paying VAT in Europe twice. As a small seller who sells my own collection,
I would not be able to reclaim any VAT, and would therefore have to close my
store.
I enjoyed very much interacting with other AFOLs on old BrickLink. Too bad that
is over for me. This VAT move commercialises something which was supposed to
be for hobbyists.

At the moment you only pay VAT for the fees not for the value of the items.

Hello,
I apologize if this has been asked about before, but does one have to actively
accept the new terms? When I read them through I see no button to accept the
new terms
