There are 2 taxes associated with Printify — the sales tax and the Value-Added Tax (VAT).
Printify will charge VAT starting from October 2021.
You may encounter one or both of these, depending on which print providers you choose to use and the location of your customers.
As with all tax matters, we strongly recommend that you consult with a qualified tax professional to get specific advice for your business. You are responsible for understanding your tax obligations and for paying taxes on the profits you make, in your jurisdiction.
Sales tax is only applicable to orders that are fulfilled and shipped within the US.
That being said, this may also apply to you if you’re an international seller using dropshipping for your business. We have prepared a comprehensive sales tax guide to help you learn more about your potential tax obligations.
Sales tax will not be charged if the merchant has submitted a valid resale certificate for the given state.

Value-Added Tax (VAT)
VAT is a consumption tax that is applied to orders sold locally or shipped across the borders of the European Union's 27* member countries, the UK, and Norway, as well as to orders imported to these countries from other non-EU countries, such as the US.
In contrast to the US sales tax system, VAT is applicable at each stage of an order’s production.
The applicable VAT rate can vary and ranges between 0% to 27%.
