Sellers who use Amazon’s Fulfillment by Amazon service are required to collect and remit sales tax in any states where their inventory has been stored.

For many FBA sellers, this means they must collect and remit sales tax in their home state plus the ever-growing number of states that have both Amazon Fulfillment Centers and a sales tax.

Getting registered for these sales tax permits can be a very time consuming process. First you have to find the state’s taxing authority and fill out an application in a timely manner. Some states even consider collecting sales tax without a permit to be a crime!

To make this process a little easier, we’ve put together this handy guide to filing for a sales tax permit in all FBA states.
