Nice to meet you, *****!
Zoom is required to charge and collect state taxes (e.g., sales taxes, gross receipts taxes, and certain telecommunications taxes) from customers in certain states where Zoom either has a physical presence (i.e., employees or office locations) or where Zoom maintains a significant market based on the amount of its sales and/or transactions with customers (subject to state specific rules).

  • Here are some basic instructions for scheduling your first meeting.
  • Sign in to your Zoom web portal.
  • Click Meetings.
  • Click Schedule a Meeting.
  • Choose the date and time for your meeting.
  • Select any other settings you would like to use.
  • Click Save.

I have a sign in password. Do I need and ID also. If so what would that number be on my invoice?

The ID should be your email.

  • Click your profile picture, then click Settings.
  • Select Backgrounds & Filters .
  • Check I have a green screen if you have a physical green screen set up.

What if I want no virtual background but my own?

You can choose no background in that same settings.
