Part of a continuing series on drop ships
[listed revised on 5/26 - not completely overhauled]
This is one of those things that has been rattling around on my articles-to-write list for a while. And I needed to update the list I use in my seminars and webinars
Herewith is, as of today, a listing of the "nutty drop ship" states. These are states that are either explicitly "nutty" or I failed to have the necessary language (in RIA's sales tax database) that makes them "not nutty." In other words, my default is that a state is "nutty" unless I can find enough information to make them "not nutty." This article explains "nutty."
Note that some of the states listed offer wiggle-room. Some will accept special paperwork or certificates. Several differentiate between interstate and intrastate shipments. FOB points may come into play. However, the states marked with an asterisk* appear to offer very little wiggle-room, if any.
You always need to do some research to determine the drop ship rules in the delivery state. Also, remember what I've said about information in tabular format. Check everything out yourself before making any serious decisions. See the disclaimer.
NOTE: This list is for illustrative purposes. It's out of date. Do your own research.
