Had my first order from a US buyer that has sales tax collected & paid via PayPal,
but how do I declare this on the parcel to prove the tax has already been paid
by the buyer, so they don’t pay twice?

No proof is necessary, sales tax isn't like VAT in this regard - the buyer
won't have to pay again.

You don’t have to because Sales tax is a State prerogative, not a federal one,
so Customs don’t care and don’t check.
