Sales tax registration: who, when and why

Sales taxes (GST) are required for all sellers, be it a product group or a service. All this is necessary to follow the laws of the country in which you develop your business. Most states in America only require sales tax registration, while a number of states also require tax registration with a federal id number issued by the IRS. Depending on the state, the reg period is different. For example, in the state of New York, businesses must apply for a certificate 20 days before tax collection starts. For online sales, everything is more individual, and you need to track your activities in order not to be late.
