Your Guide to Sales Tax on Poshmark

In 2018 and 2019, a number of states and the District of Columbia enacted new laws that require online marketplaces to collect and remit sales tax. As a result, on April 1, 2019, we launched Posh Remit, our tax remittance service, and began to collect sales tax on all eligible orders and submit it directly to states and localities on behalf of Seller Stylists. 

As of August 22nd, Poshmark will no longer collect and remit sales tax in Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, Tennessee, and Utah until online marketplace laws go into effect in those states. We’ve updated our Terms of Service, effective as of August 14th, to reflect these changes. 

We’ll be sure to keep you updated as new state laws go into effect. To see how much sales tax has been collected and remitted on your behalf, download your My Sales Report. If you are unsure what your tax obligations may be, we encourage you to consult an accountant or other expert in your area.

FAQs for Shoppers

Why did I get charged sales tax?
Poshmark is responsible for collecting and remitting sales tax, as applicable, per state laws and local tax laws or where Poshmark is otherwise obligated to do so. Sales tax can vary per order due to several factors. If you have an available Posh Credit balance, your credits will first be applied towards your order, which includes sales tax, prior to charging your payment method. 

Please note, Poshmark does observe states’ sales tax holidays. Buyers will not be charged applicable sales tax on these dates to the extent that the law exempts the specific item that is purchased. If you have any questions or concerns, contact us here.  

Why am I being charged sales tax on used items?
Poshmark is responsible for collecting and remitting sales tax, as applicable, per state and local tax laws or where Poshmark is otherwise obligated to do so.

Items that may be taxed include, but are not limited to:

  • Used items
  • Boutique items
  • Wholesale items

Sales tax is generally imposed on all sales of tangible personal property (e.g., clothing, shoes, accessories) regardless of whether the property being sold is new or used. Sales tax may be applicable to used items purchased on Poshmark because the item is being purchased/sold in a different transaction. There is generally not an exemption for the sale of used items.  

Why was I charged a different sales tax amount for my offer?
Sales tax on completed offers may vary from the estimated tax amount shown at the time the offer is made due to several factors such as:

  • Final offer price
  • Delivery address
  • Tax rates
