Good stuff, don't listen to the losers ;)
Just a random thought
Has anyone done a Kickstarter in Idaho? I wonder how you would get around the tax issues there.
"(One more tip: my accountant says that Washington State requires that I inform customers that sales tax will either be included or added to purchases. Kickstarter doesn’t let you automatically surcharge sales tax, which varies by delivery ZIP code, in any case. I chose to include it. Other states may also have this requirement.)"
You are not allowed to include the tax in ID! Retailers can't do 'we pay the sales tax" sales there either.
I had to kludge our accounting system to deal with ID and WA sales tax (plus lack of OR) at the same time in the medical field which has even more exemptions than normal. Some items are taxed depending on WHO (vet vs dr) you sell it to as well as where! Half the items are only taxed in one state but not the SAME state. Ended up with a 1000 line tax code file :( On top of that one of our big customers was the state of Wa who determines what tax to pay (not Olympia nor our rate!?!) on which items no matter what you bill. We survived an audit with a zero bill :)
oops, more than i planned. Was just supposed to be an attaboy ;)
