Sales Tax

Charles Street Research is registered in the following states and is therefore required to collect sales tax on items sold to customers in these states, to the extent the items are taxable. Whether or not an item is taxable depends upon the laws in effect in the state: Alabama, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Oklahoma, North Dakota, Jew Jersey,  Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin. Sales tax is generally calculated on the total selling price of each item. Depending upon the state’s tax laws, the total selling price of the item may include shipping and handling charges.

Although tax is not required to be collected in states where Charles Street Research is not registered, this does not necessarily mean the transaction is not subject to sales tax. Purchases may be subject to use tax which must be remitted directly to the state by the customer purchasing the item. Purchases are not exempt from sales tax solely because they are purchased on the internet, by catalog or by other remote means.

Please contact the tax authorities in your state for additional information about your responsibilities for remitting use tax. Links to all the states’ tax administrative agencies can be found at https://www.taxadmin.org/state-tax-agencies. Sales tax is generally calculated on the total selling price of each item. Depending upon the state’s tax laws, the total selling price of the item may include shipping and handling charges. Please note that amount of estimated tax appearing on an order may differ from the sales taxes ultimately charged at the time of credit card authorization.

A sales tax rate calculator can accessed from the link below. You should use the Use Tax rate when calculating the tax to include on your order payment. If you are unsure if the product you are purchasing is taxable, please contact Customer Service.
