Sales Tax Issues for every state, except California.If you are NOT in the State of California,
we are NOT required to collect sales tax on your order (yet).
If you or your company are in California, we must collect sales tax.
There are certain California customers who have exemptions to CA sales tax,
resellers, Federal Credit Unions, some military, some defense contractors. If your company has
some sort of exemption, please let us know at the time of your order. You will
probably have to supply some documentation to avoid sales tax, give us a call to find out.
If you or your company are in Massachusetts or Florida
there are some items that we can no longer ship into your state due to the fact
that one of our wholesalers will no longer drop ship into the State of Massachusetts or Florida
for us, however this is very rare and quite unlikely.
We can usually find an alternate wholesaler who doesn't roll over as easy
and who is still willing to drop ship into MA or FL for us without collecting
sales tax on what should be an exempt transaction (in our opinion).
Buyers should be aware however that many states now impose some sort of
use tax on their own citizens forcing them to pay tax on out-of-state
purchases, even though salestax on interstate commerce has been banned
as unconstitutional. But the courts have also held that use-tax is constitutional
so, although we are not required to collect tax, you may still owe use-tax, depending
upon which state you are in.
The nice thing is, at this point, we still only have
to collect Sales tax on shipments into California.
If you or your company has a CA resale certificate
and you sign a CA resale card stating that you are going to
be reselling the product to another customer,
then we don't even have to collect CA tax.
