Wyoming Sales Tax Guide
Chapter 8: Understanding Wyoming sales tax rules for shipping & handling
If you are shipping to customers in Wyoming, congrats! You have one less tax to worry about.
Is Shipping Taxable in Wyoming?
All shipping and handling is exempt in Wyoming, whether you’re sending taxable or tax-exempt items.
Exceptions to the Rule
There is one small exception to the rule, however. Let’s say your distributor charges you shipping and handling fees, and you pass that cost onto your customers by increasing the price of your products. Because the shipping and handling is now part of the sales price, you apply a sales tax to the overall cost, therefore taxing the shipping and handling.
Wyoming Sales Tax Mistakes
Sales tax on shipping and handling doesn’t get much simpler than it does in Wyoming because you don’t need to collect it. But that doesn’t mean that it is this easy everywhere else. The rules are different in each state, tax rates are continually fluctuating, and it can be a nightmare to collect the appropriate from customers — and an even bigger nightmare to file your sales taxes.
