Re: Question about charging tax and shipping queens
Lauri, in MS there is no sales tax on bees.
I use USPS express mail to ship all my queens. Local shipments will take 2 days because they go by truck. Rest will go air so most will make it overnight. Go to USPS.com and set up a click and ship account. You can print your express labels with postage paid. When you get to post office they only have to scan and print acceptance reciept. Really speeds things up and you get a discount compared to paying at PO.
Small orders go in flat rate envelopes with holes punched around edges. Larger orders go in rightway shippers I get from Mann Lake. All are in JZBZ cages.
