SPOD will be charging Sales Tax sales tax in several states* from Jan 1st, 2021 onwards.
We apply your sales tax rate based on the customers zip code. The tax rate is different in each state, and within each state, it varies by county, city, and district.
Sales tax is only applied if the customers address is located in one of the states quoted.
The sales tax charge is applied to transaction between SPOD and the merchant. For example the production cost and / or shipping cost.
Usually sales tax is based on product + shipping cost, but there are exemptions.
