Sales Tax Information

Effective January 1, 2019, we are required by law to collect and remit sales tax for all states as outlined in the chart below. Since taxable categories vary by state, please see the table below for a summary of states and taxable categories. Please note many states also require sales tax to be collected on shipping and handling charges. This change is the result of a June 2018 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that gave states the authority to require retailers to collect and remit sales tax.

For your convenience, all orders placed over the phone, via our website, or mail orders paid by credit card will have the appropriate sales tax calculated for you and applied at that time. For orders placed through the mail and paid by check, please calculate and include the appropriate tax.

This list is subject to change at any time. Please refer back to this page for the most up-to-date information, including any recent addition of states.

For more information, please see our Sales Tax Frequently Asked Questions.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if my state is included in the new Sales Tax law?

For your convenience we have created the Sales Tax chart above. This lists all states where we are currently required to collect and remit sales tax.

How do I figure the amount to pay if my state is included?

For your convenience, all orders placed over the phone, via our website, or mail orders paid by credit card will have the appropriate sales tax calculated for you and applied at that time. For orders placed through the mail and paid by check, please calculate and include the appropriate tax using your state and local tax rate. Please refer to the chart above for taxable items in your state.

What state do I pay sales tax for?

Sales tax is paid based on the state the package is being delivered to.

I'm a disabled veteran and I'm exempt from taxes.

Please mail, fax, or email us a copy of your state issued Exemption Certificate. As soon as we have that on file we will be able to process your orders without the sales tax.

What items are taxable?

What is taxed will depend on the state in which the order is being delivered to. Some products are taxable while others are not. To see what is taxed in your state please view the Sales Tax chart above.

If I'm making time payments, when do I pay the sales tax?

Sales taxes are applied to your first payment based on the requirement that we collect and remit the taxes at the time of the initial order.

Why did you charge more on my credit card than I authorized?

For your convenience we calculate and add the sales tax required to be collected by law for your state.

Why did I get a refund?

You may have overestimated the amount of sales tax you owed so we refunded the difference to you.
