In 2018, the United States Supreme Court issued its decision in South Dakota vs. Wayfair.  In accordance with this ruling, each state issues their own guidance for remote sellers.  EBTH collects sales tax based on the guidance per state. (To view all states that EBTH collects sales tax in, click here.)  


Sales tax is collected on behalf of the state where the item is fulfilled.  Sales tax is applied to the total shipping fee; due to the handling and packing being included in the total.  The combined shipping and handling fee becomes taxable. Shipping fees are not taxable if handling is listed separately, but is taxable if they're combined.


Occasionally, there are state-specific regulations on what items are taxable.  If you believe you are exempt from being taxable on a specific item or invoice, please email salestax@ebth.com with your invoice number and we will be happy to review.


If you are tax exempt, follow these instructions.
