Fire Sign Aries

Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac.  Its fire sign resembles the horns of a ram which is significant for their personality.  Aries are usually independent, generous, optimistic, enthusiastic and courageous.  They have a magnetic personality often bringing excitement into others lives, leading the way and make good friends.

Colors that appeal to Aries are fiery, mostly red and some yellow.  You’ll find lots of these in the form of necklaces, earrings and bracelets at my shop on Etsy.  Visit the Aries section on the left to see the jewelry associated with your sign.  Perhaps you’ll find something that reflects your exciting personality.

California Sales Tax Advice

I feel obliged to pass on the information I have acquired regarding the collection and remittance of sales tax to the independent sellers in California, my state.  I am a jewelry seller who has a small shop in the Etsy company.

I believe that Etsy should advise their sellers in California who collect sales tax from their customers that they must declare and pay that tax to the California Bureau of Equalization.  This applies to all independent sellers in this State, not just Etsy members.  I know for a fact that there are Etsy sellers in California who are not collecting sales tax from their California buyers. This is illegal and could cause them future problems.

The process for declaring the sales tax and remitting it to the State is extremely complicated and requires much information.  In addition I was not aware that the BOE changed the tax rate on July 1 so all data must be separated into 2 sections.  My advice would be to call the BOE and get the current requirements for remitting the payment.   Call 800-400-7115.

At least the California sellers should know what is required of them.  I am positive that some of them are ignorant of their obligation.
