Sales Tax

About Sales Tax:

Due to ever-changing sales tax laws, we leverage the latest software to ensure we remain up-to-date and compliant with all state and local sales tax laws. As a result of these changes in laws, we continually add customers’ states to our site, that require us to collect and remit sales tax. Every order that is placed has a calculation done based off of the zip code listed in the ship-to address, since this is what sales tax is based on in most cases.

Order totals shown in the order window during checkout reflect estimated tax. The actual charge to your credit card includes all applicable taxes calculated at the time your order is shipped. Those tax amounts appear on your invoice.

Our tax policy: The taxes we charge on merchandise are based on state and local tax laws and tax rates. The tax for an order depends on the delivery address and the location from which the order is shipped. If an order is made up of items shipped from multiple warehouses to a single delivery address, the tax rate applied to the order may vary based on the warehouse locations.

Where required, tax is also applied to the shipping and handling charges. Each state varies on whether shipping charges are taxable.

Depending on the ship-to location, sales tax may also be exempt for clothing items.

Currently, the states that we are required to collect, and remit sales tax are as follows:

  • Arkansas
  • California
  • Colorado
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Illinois
  • Indiana
  • Iowa
  • Kentucky
  • Louisiana
  • Maine
  • Maryland
  • Michigan
  • Minnesota
  • Nebraska
  • Nevada
  • New Jersey
  • New York
  • North Carolina
  • Oklahoma
  • Pennsylvania
  • South Carolina
  • Texas
  • Utah
  • Virginia
  • Washington
  • West Virginia
  • Wisconsin

If you return an item for a refund, that refund includes the taxes you paid for the item. There is no refund for taxes paid on shipping and handling, because shipping and handling charges are nonrefundable as soon as an item has been shipped.
