How much is Sales Tax for orders going to Georgia?
Since we are located in Georgia, we are required by law to tax all orders shipped to the very state. The Georgia (GA) state sales tax rate is dependent on the county and local taxes. In most areas, the sales tax rate varies between 7% – 8%.
To not lose profit on these orders, add sales tax for Georgia on your platform. The appropriate tax rate will be calculated from the total product + shipping retail price on your e-commerce platform or if you provide the “retail prices” during your checkout process when submitting the order manually.
Our Georgia address is:
1272 Dahlgren Lane, Atlanta, Georgia 30316
Why am I being charged tax for all Georgia orders?
We’re located in Georgia. Because we have a presence in Georgia, we’re required by law to tax all orders shipped to Georgia, unless you provide a state resale certificate.
You can apply for a Georgia Taxpayer’s ID (Sales Tax Permit) on the Georgia Department Of Revenue page right here.
If you DO NOT have a Georgia Taxpayer’s ID (State resale certificate), we will collect Georgia statewide tax + district/city tax on all orders to Georgia. It’s calculated from product value + shipping.
Note that Dropship Beauty will only charge sales tax on orders shipped to Georgia. You can read more about Georgia sales tax here.
Once You Receive Your GA Sales Tax Number
Once you have received your Sales Tax Number we require you to send it to us to have on file and activate the “Sales Tax Exemption” for your account.
You must be collecting and reporting Georgia Sales Tax at this point.
We will verify all submitted forms with the state which may take 3 – 5 business days.
Please download our ST-5 form for our parent company, Luxury Hair Direct LLC, and complete the form.
