I Do Business in a State that isn’t One of the 14 in Which Lightning Source is Currently Required to Charge Sales Tax. Will I Still be Affected?

Possibly, yes. Tax is based on the state where the transaction occurs, so you could still be taxed depending on how freight is arranged:
•If Lightning Source arranges for freight, the transaction is deemed to have taken place in the state where the books are being shipped.
•If you arrange for freight, the transaction is deemed to have taken place in the state where the books are printed. (Lightning Source printing facilities are in Tennessee, Ohio, Pennsylvania and California—all states that charge sales tax without exemption documentation).
 
We highly recommend completing the resale and exemption documentation as requested on the Lightning Source website. If Lightning Source is required to register in additional states and/or if sales tax laws change to include services currently not taxable, Lightning Source will have the information already on file for you.

    Not helpful.  It's incredibly confusing and I have no idea what applies to me.  We are too small to file sales tax reports in every state.  I don't have any sales in the majority of the states listed, so I fail to understand why I need papers on file in those states. Our plan is to stop drop shipping through Lightning Source.
