Based on the destination of your order, Amazon may be legally obligated to calculate, collect, and remit applicable national, state, or local sales or use taxes, goods and services taxes (GST), or value added taxes (VAT) (collectively referred to as Taxes).
Marketplace Tax Collection applies to all products, from all sellers, on all Amazon marketplaces, when an order is being shipped to a jurisdiction (country, state, county, city, district) where Marketplace Facilitator laws have been enacted. All sellers must agree to automatic Marketplace Tax Collection, irrespective of their location, product or order origin, or the volume or quantity of sales made by the seller.
The buyer pays the taxes collected by Amazon on the product sold. The collected amounts are reflected on your order details and order reporting with a deduction (using the reporting identifiers in the table below) equal to the amount of Amazon’s obligation to remit to the appropriate government authority. Additional information about the different taxes is available on the respective FAQ page links below.

Amazon remits the collected amounts to the appropriate government authority as Amazon, based on applicable law. If the tax amount deducted by Amazon is less than the amount collected from the buyer, the difference remains the seller’s responsibility to remit to the appropriate government authority. Amazon does not report or remit taxes on behalf of any seller to government authorities.
