Tax Exemption

The amount of tax charged for your order depends upon many factors, including:

  • The identity and location of the seller
  • The location of the approval
  • The type of item purchased
  • The destination of the shipment

Estimated Taxes

All orders shipped in New York State must add 8.875% sales tax with the price of the item(s) purchased.

*Please Note: If you reside in New York and you do not see the sales tax added to your order total before completion of your order please call us at (212) 354-1341 to verify. Sales tax will be included in your purchase if shipped to New York State.

Many factors can change between the time you place an order and the time your order is shipped. Therefore, the amount appearing on your order as “Estimated Tax” may differ from the sales taxes ultimately charged.

How Sales Tax Is Calculated

If an item is subject to sales or use tax in the state to which it is shipped, tax is generally calculated on its total selling price. In accordance with state tax laws, the total selling price of an item generally includes item-level shipping / handling charges, discounts / gift-wrap charges, and an allocation of order-level shipping and handling charges / discounts.

The tax rate applied to your order will generally be the combined state and local rate for the address where your order is approved or shipped. Therefore, fees associated with shipping & handling may vary.


International Shipping

*Due to Federal Law, we may be unable to ship certain items that contain Lithium batteries to international destinations.*

By law we are required to declare the actual purchase price of all items in your order. We cannot declare your purchase a gift or at any other amount less than the actual purchase price.

International purchases are subject to any additional fees dictated by the country receiving the package, and the international carrier.

Please see our restrictions page for restrictions on international shipping.
