    Are you taxed based on where your billing address is or your shipping address?
    Thanks

    Sales taxes are based on the shipping address.

    There are a number of states without any sales taxes. Regardless, the point is that sales taxes are applied based on where the item is intended to be used. The simplest way of determining this is the shipping address. It's not always true that it's where the item will be used, but it's a decent system that's easy to administer.
