REGARDING SALES TAXon DROP SHIPMENTS:

As you know, the state that you live in is, as it always has been, scrambling to getas much sales tax revenue as theyare legally allowed to.

In the past, whenyou would buy a product from an out of state source, and had it Drop Shipped to you,it wasconsidered to be your responsibility to report this to the state and pay the sales tax on the products.

The ease of buying products on the Internet has been changing that notion, and many statesnow consider out-of-state purchases that they can not driectlycollect"Sales Tax" on to be subject to"USE TAX" at the same or similar rate. In the long run, they are starting to do what they can legally do to eliminate the chance that the end used may not take theresponsibility to report these purchases to their state, and pay the sales tax on those purchases.

In the last few years, as you all know,more and more States have passed laws REQUIRING that the SELLERcollect the "sales tax", or "USE tax" from the end consumers DIRECTLY, whether they have a physical presence in that State or not. This way, they can be assured that they will receive at least aportion of the "Sales" or "Use"tax that they could have collected if the customer had purchased theitems or services within their own state's borders.

As of this writing, manyStateswill still acceptour New York StateSales Tax certificate, which meanswe are NOTRequired to adjust the cost of your order to reflect the upchargewe must pay in "Use" tax for shipment to your state. You may still be responsible forpayingthe "Sales" or "Use" tax to your own State on the honor system.

TheStates thatDO NOT require that we adjust the cost of your order, because they do NOTcharge "Use" tax to are:
AK, AL,AR, CO, DE, FL, GA, IN, IA, KS, KY, LA, MI, MN, MO, NE, NH, NV, NJ, ND, OH, OK, RI, SC, SD, TX, UT, VT, VA, WA, WV, WY

If you live in one of the following States, your State has REQUIRED that Quality Doors collect the"Use" tax that your Statehas legislated as mandatory for Drop Shipments (unless you provide us with an up to date tax exemption certificate for that state) :
AZ, AR, CA, CT,DC, HI, ID,IL,ME, MD, MA, MS, MT,NM, NY, NC, OR, PA,TN,WI

So, if you live in one of the second group of states listed above, we WILL adjust your order price automatically to reflect what we pay in "USE" tax.

If anycompany tells you that you do Not need to pay the sales tax due,they are wrong, and you will be setting yourself up for collection with interest and penalties. All sales must be reported to the state that they were delivered to.

UNTIL ALL STATES DECIDE HOW THEY WILL HANDLE THE SALES TAX ISSUE, WEARE FORCED TOADJUST THE PRICING ON YOUR ORDER TO REFLECT THE"USE TAX" CHARGES THAT QUALITY DOORS, INC. IS REQUIRED TO COLLECT BASED ON YOUR STATE'S LAWS.THE TAX RATE WILL BE COMPUTED ON THE MANUFACTURER'S COST(which will be less than you pay) AND THE TAX RATE YOUR STATE HAS DETERMINED TO BE THE LAWFUL TAXFOR YOUR JURISDICTION.
