How do you figure taxes in Paypal

by JeanetteatBeach 5 replies
I am new here so excuse me if I am posting to the wrong place.
I have done affiliate programs before, but recently posted a sales page for a downloadable info product that has a Paypal button for paying. When I set up the paypal account, it asked me to specify how to handle taxes. I had no idea.
If you have sales in multiple states and international, do you collect taxes? How? What is the process I need to follow.
No one talks about this so maybe it isn't as confusing as I think - but I sure would appreciate any one that can give me guidance on how to handle sales tax for downloadable information products.

    Forget about taxes. Just leave it blank or type in $0.

      Those aren't taxes. They're fees. That's different.

      If you want to know how much tax you're required to collect on your product, talk to an accountant or tax professional who knows the laws for YOUR state and YOUR business.
