Getting started

Hi everyone,

I'm new to this community, and it's been super helpful to read it. I have one question though. I am testing the waters before going all in. I started by running a little experiment selling specific goods from Italy on ebay (selling in US market), it worked pretty well and proved there's a market.

Now, I want to open an online store. That being said, I'm still trying to figure out demand so it doesn't make sense for me to incorporate a company (trying to save those expenses). Seems like Shopify allows an individual to open a store and use shopify pay.

Now what I'm completely ignorant about is taxes. How does this work? 1/ for collecting sales taxes (I assume I need to pass those on to the state) and 2/ for my personal taxes ? and 3/ what about import taxes?

I'm completely out of my comfort zone here so any help would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to post links to reddit posts where this has been answered, but I using the search bar yielded too many results and I couldn't find an answer.
