As a seller, will GI require me to collect sales tax on a firearm transaction if the gun is shipped to a state that has sales tax?


My biggest fear is when I die my wife will sell my guns for what I told her they cost.

Doesn't the site do that? That's how ebay works. They collect and add the amount to the buyers invoice.

Another wake up for the snoring crowd- the Mayfair v. South Dakota decision in 2018 started the ball rolling.

https://www.cpajournal.com/2021/04/...urts-decision-in-south-dakota-v-wayfair/

Gun Broker has been doing this for the past year. Guns International and any online site passing the threshold set by the decision through its portal is required to comply.

It sucks and its no fun for buyer or seller, but its old information. Imagine the software required to run such a mess considering all the changing state laws.

I suspect a lot of tax collected from the buyer never makes it into state coffers.


Well this is a fine pickle we're in, should'a listened to Joe McCarthy and George Orwell I guess.

Reason I ask is Gunbrokers automatically adds sales tax to the invoice and seller has to send it to me. Then GB charges me on my CC for the tax collected.
Does GI work the same ?

No- they do not.

Dealers who sell there collect tax on sales within their own states.

Since Gun International is simply a listing service and not an Auction site that also handles the payments, they do not collect sales tax on behalf of the sellers.

That’s what I needed to know.
Thank you
