AIM: # 1 Posted on 15.7.04 1301.01 | Instant Rating: 5.40 Does anyone have any experience with the legalities of businesses seeling their products on eBay? Specifically, If a business wanted to sell re-furbished or used products with no bidding, just the "Buy it Now" price, would that create a problem? As long as the business keeps all the necessary info for tax pruposes, I don't see how it could be trouble. But feel free to enlighten me... thanks, I'll hang up and listen. -ES Visit ES online- it's "Internet Entertainment"! Promote this thread!

Some states require the collection of sales tax if you sell mail order to people in your state.

ICQ: # 4 Posted on 15.7.04 1551.33 | Instant Rating: 5.25 Yes, I think Zeruel said is the only catch. I've ordered from businesses via eBay in the past, so I know they're out there. Some will include a "XX residents include X% sales tax" bit in their auction. As long as you do that, you should be OK. The beatings will continue until morale improves.

In my Accounting 220 class, the prof said that if you collect the tax or not, the seller is responsible for it and will be required to pay the state for it. It only makes sense to pass that cost on to the customer

Consult a lawyer or a state official. (edited by Guru Zim on 15.7.04 1530) Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.
Thanks for the tip, Guru. I only signed up for the OO mailing list and I've managed to keep my hotmail account pretty much spam free so I really appreciate the chance to keep it that way.
