Setting Up Sales Tax with Backprint


2015 Payment and Income Reporting Update:

We will publish a complete 2015 payment and order report with relevant sales tax information by February 1, 2016 to the Reports page under the Payments section. The link will say "2015 Account Payment Report." This report will download as a CSV spreadsheet. 


Tax law is as easy to understand as quantum mechanics. To help reduce the number of audits and other unwanted legal attention from the government Backprint will collect taxes in the states that you specify for the amounts you specify. 

If this is left blank, Backprint will collect no sales tax. You have the sole responsibility of assessing and paying sales tax in the states in which you are doing business based on the tax law of the state. Any sales tax collected by Backprint will be included in your weekly payment.
