    When you sell a photo, or any other product, online, how do taxes work? Are they automatically taken out, or would I be responsible to report all earnings from my "online shop?" If I have to do it myself, is it a complicated task? Also, if you do have an online shop, what software/hosting do you use? Thanks in advance.

    Eric.

    You are responsible for all sales taxes collection and submission.

    I think you only have to pay taxes if the person purchasing from your website is in the same state.

    Thank you both. The Traveler do you know if there is any software that automatically does this for you? As for the in-state only thing, I've heard something like that before, not sure if it is true. Anyone else feel free to add/clarify.
