Current law requires us to collect sales or other applicable state taxes, based on the order's "ship to" address in those states or jurisdictions where ThinkGeek has an established business presence. So, if you are shipping to Florida, Minnesota, Ohio, Virginia or Washington, all applicable taxes will be clearly displayed on your final order summary/receipt.
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.
If you are a resident of the following states or jurisdictions, please note the following:
ThinkGeek is not required to, and does not, collect Kentucky sales or use tax. Your purchase may be subject to Kentucky use tax unless the purchase is exempt from tax in Kentucky. The purchase is not exempt merely because it is made over the Internet, by catalog or by other remote means. The Commonwealth of Kentucky requires Kentucky purchasers to report all purchases of tangible personal property or digital property that are not taxed by the retailer and pay use tax on those purchases unless exempt under Kentucky law. The tax may be reported and paid on the Kentucky individual income tax return or by filing a consumer use tax return with the Kentucky Department of Revenue. These forms and corresponding instructions may be found on the Kentucky Department of Revenue's Internet website: http://revenue.ky.gov.
The tax may be reported and paid on the Oklahoma individual income tax return [Form 511] or by filing a consumer use tax return [Form 21-1]. The referenced forms and corresponding instructions are available on the Oklahoma Tax Commissioner website: http://www.tax.ok.gov.
The tax may be reported and paid on the South Dakota use tax form. The use tax form and corresponding instructions are available from the South Dakota Department of Revenue website: http://dor.sd.gov.
The tax may be reported and paid on the Vermont use tax form. The use tax form and corresponding instructions are available from the Vermont Department of Revenue website: http://www.state.vt.us/tax/usetax.shtml.
State sales and other tax rates are subject to change at any time. ThinkGeek will collect applicable sales and other applicable state taxes when ThinkGeek establishes a presence in any additional state or jurisdiction.
