When do I need to charge tax for US orders?

A CPA or tax specialist should be consulted in order for you to have a full understanding of your tax obligations.
In general you are required to charge sales tax when you have a nexus. You may have physical nexus or economic nexus. You can find a guide and more complete list on TaxJars The Seller's Guide to eCommerce Sales Tax - TaxJar Developers
If you do in fact have sales tax nexus in a state, then you should look into getting a sales tax permit for that state. How to Register for a Sales Tax Permit - TaxJar

The thresholds describe the total revenue or numbers of transactions in a state. Read more about the thresholds for the different states here Sales Tax by State: Economic Nexus Laws - TaxJar
Physical Presence
If you as a seller is located in the US, you are physically present in a home state, meaning you probably need to register for a sales tax permit in your own state. You may have a physical presence in several states if you have an office, inventory or an employee working in a second state.
