Shipping charges in Indiana are not taxable as of July 1, 2013. The Department of Revenue now declares that there is no tax obligation on shipping charges as long as they are stated separately on the invoice.

“Drop shipping” refers to the common business practice in which a vendor, often in a different state, makes a sale of a product which is shipped to the end-user by a third party supplier hired by the initial vendor. In Indiana, drop shipments may or may not be subject to taxation depending on the circumstances.
