Sales Tax and VAT:

For orders within the United States, we collect and remit sales tax in about twenty states. That list of states may change from time to time; as of January 2018, we collect tax in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah and Wisconsin. If you're wondering why we charge sales tax in all of those states despite not having any operations in the great majority of them, well, the answer is that there was a Supreme Court decision in 2018 in the case of Wayfair v. South Dakota which considerably broadened the power of states to collect sales tax by scrapping the "physical presence" rule. For reasons which are more complicated than we need to go into here, however, in some cases you may find that the rate we are required to charge and collect is lower than the rate that you pay locally.

For international orders, there are usually two options at checkout. If you choose to have your order shipped by Federal Express, we will estimate and collect VAT at checkout, and we will then pre-pay VAT and duty on your shipment so that the shipment arrives without any charge at delivery. If you choose a postal service method of shipment, will not not charge any taxes at checkout, but depending upon the import practices of your country, you may owe taxes upon receipt (or prior to receipt) of the shipment.
