Sales and Use Tax Notice
Do I have to pay sales tax?
Sales and use taxes are imposed by state and local jurisdictions on goods purchased at retail by consumers. Retailers subject to state law are required to collect the state’s sales and use taxes from their customers. Oakridge Home collects the applicable sales tax on all orders shipped to Wisconsin. As a result of a recent US Supreme Court decision, we are now required to collect sales and use taxes in many other states. Each state and local jurisdiction has its own rules for what are “taxable goods” and what are exempt goods. For states imposing sales or use taxes, your purchase is subject to use tax unless it is specifically exempt from taxation. Your purchase is not exempt merely because it is made over the Internet, by catalog or by other remote means. Many states require purchasers to file a use tax return at the end of the year reporting all of the taxable purchases that were not taxed by a retailer, and to pay tax on those purchases.
Effective October 1, 2018, Oakridge Home will collect sales tax in the following states – AL, HI, IL, IN, KY, ME, MA, MI, MN, MS, ND, VT and WA. We will start collecting sales tax effective November 1, 2018, for SC, SD, NJ, and NC and effective December 1, 2018 for CO and CT. Beginning January 1, 2019, we will begin collection for GA, IA, LA, NE, OK, PA, RI and UT. We will update this disclosure as new states enact sales and use tax collection laws.
For mail orders: To ensure that your order is processed, you must add sales tax for the address to which the order will be shipped. Please see https://www.vertexinc.com/resources/tax-rate-calculator to look-up the correct rate.
