What are your sales and use tax obligations?

Specific to manufacturers and distributors, producing and shipping products create special sales and use tax situations. Finding the right sales and use tax code can depend on: item taxability, shipping to retailers, drop shipping, manufacturing exemptions, and interplant transfer. These are just a few situations that create sales and use tax complexity even before tracking and applying rates across more than 12,000 North American jurisdictions—which can change at any time. It’s challenging to keep up.
