7 - What about third-party drop shipments?
In a typical transaction, you would sell merchandise to a vendor who is not registered to collect Maryland sales and use tax. The unregistered vendor asks you to deliver the merchandise to a customer in Maryland. In this case, you must:
- Require the vendor to obtain a Maryland sales and use tax license and provide a valid resale certificate; OR
- Charge the vendor the tax based on the amount of the sale. You are responsible for collecting or documenting the tax on your sale to the vendor.
