Keeping up with the latest trends is a must for any business, but ignoring technology trends in the digital world is the matter of staying in business. Unfortunately, those trends (while easy enough to find mentioned online) are rarely explained well. There seems to be this mistaken idea that anyone who has an interest or need in the practice will just magically get the jargon. As we all know, that is one superpower that doesn’t exist in the real world.

Offering tangible personal property for sale on an online marketplace will generally not, by itself, cause an out-of-state retailer to be engaged in business in California, even if the marketplace operator is located in California. Generally, the use by an out-of-state retailer of a website hosted on servers located in California will not cause the retailer to be engaged in business in California. However, an out-of-state retailer that stores tangible personal property in California, including at a fulfillment center owned and operated by a third-party is engaged in business in California.
Modern electronic commerce typically uses the World Wide Web for at least one part of the transaction's life cycle although it may also use other technologies such as e-mail. Typical e-commerce transactions include the purchase of online books (such as Amazon) and music purchases (music download in the form of digital distribution such as iTunes Store), and to a less extent, customized/personalized online liquor store inventory services.[1] There are three areas of e-commerce: online retailing, electric markets, and online auctions. E-commerce is supported by electronic business.[2]

One other source, a 2006 online publication from the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts (TCPA) on Internet sales, states that businesses with “physical representation” in Texas must collect sales tax but an “out-of-state seller is not required to collect Texas tax if the seller only conducts business in Texas from out-of-state by mail, telephone, or via the Internet.”
