Mandatory Now: New Lithium Battery Labels for 2019
The packaging and shipping of lithium batteries is highly regulated to reduce the risk of accident and injury. If your business ships this type of battery, it’s incredibly important to stay on top of the latest regulations. For example, there are new requirements for shipping lithium battery labels that affect the way many businesses can mail these items. Shipments must meet new labeling requirements due to these new regulations. These new communications were added to all the different sets of regulations (whether D.O.T., IATA, or IMDG) at the start of 2017.
When this new rule was originally announced, a two-year transition period was provided to start using the new marks and labels. During that two-year period, you could use either the “old” marks and labels or the new updated ones.
As of January 1, 2019, that transition period has ended. As such, you can no longer use the old versions; you must use the newest options.

Why Am I Being Charged Sales Tax?
Until recently, Supplies Shops Inc. was only incorporated in the state of New Jersey. The June 2018 South Dakota v. Wayfair Supreme Court case changed the basis for sales tax collection. This decision allowed states to determine an economic threshold for businesses who have no physical presence in a state. If total sales and / or number of transactions crosses those thresholds determined by a state, a business is determined to have economic nexus and must register to collect and remit sales tax.
As various states pass new economic nexus laws, the Supplies Shops will have to register and start collecting sales tax in those states.
What does this mean for our customers?
Customers do not have to make any changes to the way they use our website. If you are located in a state where we are now collecting sales tax, you will simply see taxes starting to be reflected in the shopping cart when you enter your ship to zip code. The tax will be included on the order and Supplies Shops will remit to the proper state authorities.
What if you are a tax exempt customer?
Tax exempt customers can submit their tax exempt certificate to [email protected] We will then adjust your account to reflect your tax exempt status. After that point, when you log in to your account to place an order, you will no longer see taxes being charged during checkout.
You can find more information about Supplies Shops charging sales tax on our sales tax information page.
