U.S. Sales Tax for Foreign Sellers

Recent Posts

U.S. sales tax can be a challenge for any international company (in any industry) making sales to U.S. customers. Although many foreign sellers may be familiar with international tax concepts and U.S. federal tax treaty protection, they may not realize that many states do not recognize bi-lateral treaties and therefore, could be subject to the sales tax rules of every U.S. state that imposes a sales tax. Additionally, international sellers accustomed to a VAT may find the U.S. sales tax model confusing. This blog will cover these topics as well as many others – all geared towards helping the foreign seller understand how the U.S. sales tax rules apply to their U.S. transactions.
