I have a question about tax. After our first year we decided to buck up and make the buyer pay the sales tax online (at shows we will still cover the tax). I was worried that if I applied the tax here on Etsy AND on Paypal that it would double tax Indiana residents. So since all orders go through Paypal, I took the tax off here on Etsy.
We recieved an order from our website and the 7% tax worked through Paypal. But this week we got an Indiana order on Etsy (paid through Paypal) and it appears that Paypal didn't apply the tax. So I presume that Paypal doesn't apply tax to orders through Etsy??
Just don't want to double tax anyone.

Etsy's shopping cart will override any of your Paypal tax settings (there is a way to change that somewhere in your Paypal settings but it's complicated) So yes, you'll want to set it up here on Etsy and your buyers won't be charged twice - at least mine never have been...
