The precedent set by the South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc. Supreme Court Decision allows states to tax remote sales, like those made through ShareGrid and any other e-commerce sites.

Unlike shopping in-person at a brick-and-mortar shop where the taxes are based on the seller’s shop location, Marketplace Facilitator Taxes work a bit differently. The tax rate is primarily based on the buyer’s shipping destination, as opposed to the seller’s location.
