Charging and Collecting Sales tax
Our sales tax function is built for Castiron artisans based in the United States. We strongly encourage you to consult your local tax professional prior to making any pricing or financial decision, as this article should not be construed as tax or legal advice.
To collect sales tax, navigate to the Payments section of Castiron, under Store.
At the bottom of the Payments page, you'll see the option to set your tax rate. State and local tax rates vary based on your location, the types of product you're selling, and much more. Do your research to make sure that you're collecting the correct amount of sales tax, if it's required in your state.
The tax percentage that you set will be automatically collected when your customers check out. The sales tax that your customers pay will be lumped into your total payout, meaning it will not be set aside for you. You should keep track of the taxes you collect. You will receive a 1099 tax form at the end of the year recording the amount of taxes you've collected and owe the government.
