After doing my bi-annual tax check across the country I recently found out that Kansas is the only state in the union refusing nexus style regulations!
I know, it’s crazy, but any items sold in or shipped to Kansas require a sales license and payment of state sales taxes even if it is only $.10. WOW!
For perspective, all other states in the union have “nexus” laws which help determine which businesses are required to pay sales taxes and which aren’t. Simply put if you are a tiny online crafter like myself you aren’t considered large enough to warrant adherence to the local sales tax laws. For example, most states consider $100,000 to $200,000 in annual sales or 200 transactions annually enough to qualify for a nexus status significant enough to require licensing and the payment of sales taxes.
So I find myself in a bit of a pickle, but I think I’ve found a solution at least for now. Unfortunately I really don’t have the resources to keep up with multiple licensing and tax laws for multiple states. Colorado laws are complicated enough with all of our home rule cities and special districts and such. So here is my plan. 🙂
All Kansas buyers will need to buy through my Etsy Store (https://www.etsy.com/shop/RosaryStuff) instead of this store. Etsy has the resources to charge and pay the appropriate taxes for all of my Kansas customers. 🙂 Keep in mind, you can still choose from any of the items in either of my stores (etsy or this one), but the final purchase must go through Etsy. Whether you need rosary parts, a custom rosary, or something else, just contact me with what you need and I will create a special Etsy listing for you. 🙂 You don’t have to be a member of Etsy to shop there, so if you have any questions or need help please don’t hesitate to contact me. 🙂
