Dear BrickLink Members,

On October 1, 2020, we successfully started collecting sales taxes on all orders
shipping to the states of Connecticut and California. This is a notice that we
plan to add another 40+ states to this program in the coming weeks and months.

We have created a dedicated page for this information:

https://www.bricklink.com/help.asp?helpID=2503

Please check this page for the very latest available information on when we will
start collecting for each state.

Due to our current deployment methods, we will likely be adding states in small
groups every couple weeks. The order in which states are added depends on several
factors, including state deadlines, the time necessary to register in that state,
and the amount of business we facilitate in relation to that state.

In addition to updates to the above page, we will be posting announcements in
the Forum.

For those of you asking about exemptions, we are planning to tackle that subject
relatively soon. Please stay tuned.

Thank you,

The BrickLink Team

Thanks for the heads up!

btw, the implementation should proceed alphabetically, Washington being 47th
or near last

Maybe I missed this, but for those of us who run actual businesses, how does
this new tax collection affect our State Sales Tax filings? Will we be issued
some sort of document to file stating what tax was collected on our behalf through
BrickLink for sales tax filing purposes?

Ideally I would like to see an option to 'exclude' your own state from
the automatic tax collection and remittance. I need to file taxes anyway due
to local sales, other business, etc. It's a bit redundant to have this go
through the Bricklink system. eBays tax collection and remittance does offer
the option to exclude your own state if you file sales tax yourself.

Good that things are going forward.

But as I suggested in the other thread, you have to inform all Bricklink sellers
about this kind of things. Be it by email or by popup (if it shows only 1 time).

This forum is buried, there is no "Admin updates" box in each seller dashboard
(My profile) for example.
