    Simple question:

    Do I have to collect a sales tax for goods I am selling online?

    I am reselling hosting, and also selling ebooks.

    Am I required to collect any kind of a sales tax?

    As of now you are only required to collect taxes on customers that live in your state. There has been a big push by the states to change this so it very well may change in the future.
