What does the San Bernardino, California Amazon Fulfillment Center mean for Amazon FBA sellers?

So most states are either an origin-based or destination-based sales tax state, however, California is a hybrid of the two. This can make things confusing for an FBA seller, however, we think we can simplify it. Basically, if you utilize the fulfillment center in San Bernardino, California considers you to have nexus in the state, which means you have to charge the California sales tax rate to everyone outside of the San Bernardino district. For customers who live within the San Bernardino district, you would charge them the state rate and the district rate.

For example, you sell a teddy bear to a customer in San Francisco, to that customer you would charge the state sales tax rate. Then let’s say you sell a teddy bear to a customer in San Bernardino, you would charge that customer the state rate AND the district rate.

If you have nexus in the state of California, be sure to register your business. You can do so at the California Board of Equalization’s Online Portal.
