– Due to the 2018 ruling by the United States Supreme Court in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc, companies may now be held liable for collecting out-of-state sales tax based on the zip code an item(s) is shipped to. This varies based on the state and company due to the new nexus laws being put into effect. Because of this new law, invoices may now contain sales tax based on the zip code provided by your bidding profile.
