eBay to Collect More States' Sales Tax on October 1st

eBay will collect and remit online sales tax for additional states beginning October 1st, it announced on Tuesday. The change impacts transactions involving buyers residing in Arizona, California, Colorado, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, North Dakota, South Carolina, Texas, and Utah.

eBay announcement follows:

Beginning October 1, 2019, eBay will collect sales tax on applicable transactions for buyers in Arizona, California, Colorado, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, North Dakota, South Carolina, Texas & Utah. For states that we are collecting tax, you do not need to take any action.

We are implementing this change because it is a legal obligation for eBay. Sellers may not opt-out of selling items in the states that we are collecting tax, or out of eBay automatically collecting sales tax for applicable orders.

Additional states will likely be added. Stay informed on the Help pages.
