Ebay dropshipping: nexus, sales tax exemption
A State Sales Tax Number is required for almost every type of business. If your company sells goods over the internet, such as on eBay, or through a storefront, and the items are delivered within the same state, sales tax must be collected from the buyer and paid to the state.
You can buy things without paying sales tax in your state. When you buy something for resale, you don’t have to pay sales tax in your state. Items must be suitable for resale or qualified commercial use. In most cases, you will be exempt from paying state sales tax if you buy an item from a wholesale organization or even another retailer and resell it.

A sales tax is a tax on the sale of certain goods and services that is paid to a governing body (state or local). Virginia’s general state sales tax was first enacted in 1966, and the rate has since risen to 4.3 percent. There may be one or more municipal sales taxes, as well as one or more special district taxes, in addition to the state sales tax, each of which may range from 0% to 2.7 percent. Combined sales tax rates in Virginia currently range from 4.3 percent to 7%, depending on where the sale is made.
You act as an agent of the Commonwealth of Virginia as a business owner selling taxable goods or services by collecting tax from customers and remitting it to the appropriate tax authority. The Virginia Department of Taxation is in charge of the state’s sales and use tax (Virginia Tax).
The commonwealth of Virginia owns any sales tax collected from consumers, not you. It is your responsibility to keep track of the taxes you collect in order to comply with state and local regulations. Penalties and interest charges may be imposed if this is not done.

For taxpayers whose average monthly Sales and Use tax payment for the previous calendar year (or part of a year if not in business for the entire year) was $100,000, the accelerated Sales and Use payment is due by June 20. The tax owed for the first 15 days of June is referred to as the accelerated payment. The accelerated payment should be the full amount due or 12 percent of the May payment. The remaining June liability must be paid by July 20th.
Unless a clear exemption is given, all sales of goods and services are assumed to be subject to Sales & Use Tax. The seller imposes sales tax on the sale of goods and services at the time of purchase. In West Virginia, a use tax is levied on the use of goods and services for which the applicable sales tax has not been paid. State and local sales and use taxes are included in the combined sales and use tax.
The sale of goods and services within a municipality approved to levy a Special District Excise Tax in lieu of Sales Tax is subject to the Special District Excise Tax. The tax is reported on the appropriate form for the district, and any applicable Use Tax is reported on the appropriate form for the district.

When a company buys inventory to resell, it is exempt from paying sales tax. To do so, the retailer must provide their vendor with a Virginia Sales and Use Tax Certificate of Exemption (commonly referred to as a Resale Certificate).
When retailers buy goods to resell, they often do not pay sales tax to the supplier. Sales tax will still be collected, but instead of the retailer paying it, the customer will be charged sales tax on the final value of the goods. The retailer then sends the sales tax collected to the Virginia Department of Taxation.
When a pet store buys dog toys from a supplier to sell in the store, for example, the pet store owner usually doesn’t have to pay sales tax to the supplier. When a customer (or end-user) buys a dog toy, the retailer will charge them sales tax based on the total price of the toy. The retailer will collect sales tax from all transactions and send it to the state on a regular basis (usually at the end of the month).
