FilterAce.com is located in New York City and we are obligated to collect New York Sales Tax on any items shipped to destinations in New York State. We are not obligated to, and do not, collect sales tax on orders shipping to destinations outside of New York.
We do not collect sales or use taxes in all states. 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 or by other remote means. Many states require purchasers to file a sales/use tax return at the end of the year reporting all of the taxable purchases that were not taxed and to pay tax on those purchases. Details of how to file these returns may be found at the websites of your respective taxing authorities.
Sales Tax is only collected for orders shipping to NY. Current NYC sales tax rate is 8.875%
If tax has been charged on a recent order and you need to take advantage of your tax exempt status, Customer Service can facilitate a refund. You will need to send a copy of your New York Resale Certificate.
