About Sales Tax

We are required by law to collect New York State sales tax on all shipments to addresses within New York. The sales tax rate varies by county (and sometimes according to the municipality within a given county).

If you are in New York State, but having your order shipped to an address outside of New York State, we will not charge sales tax.

If you're ordering from another state but shipping to an address within New York State, we must charge sales tax.

At this point, we are not required to collect sales tax on shipments outside of New York State, but new laws may be passed to change this in the future.

If you wish to make a purchase that is exempt from New York State sales tax, you must have a valid New York State exemption number. In order for us to exempt your purchase from sales tax, we must have a properly completed exemption form on file at the time of sale. Forms may be found online; here is a link to the New York State Department of Tax and Finance's website's list of forms. Completed forms should be faxed to us at 716-662-8004. If we do not have a completed form at the time you make your purchase, we are required to collect the sales tax. You may provide us with a completed form afterwards, in which case we can issue a refund of the sales tax paid. Requests for refunds of sales tax must be received within 14 days of the original purchase.
