Tax on Items Sold by Sellers on Amazon

Amazon.com is a marketplace for merchants (sellers) to sell their products and services alongside those sold by Amazon. In addition, Amazon's marketplace supports sellers to calculate tax on their sales per their instruction. Sellers may have different sales tax collection obligations depending on the policies and operations of their business. As a result, it is possible that some items in your order may be taxed, while others may not be.

Amazon calculates, collects, and remits tax on sales made by merchants shipped to customers located in the states that have enacted Marketplace Facilitator, Marketplace Fairness, or similar laws. These laws shift collection responsibility from the merchant to the marketplace facilitating the merchant's sale. For more information, go to Marketplace Tax Collection.

Amazon is unable to speak on behalf of a seller's tax obligations. Tax information for sellers can usually be found on the seller's storefront under "Policies".

For Kindle books, subscriptions and active content titles sold by various publishers to locations outside the U.S., the publishers determine the tax to be included in the price.
