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.
