Local Sales Tax
If the order is shipped within California , the law requires that local sales tax be added to the order total including the amount of the shipping charge. If you have resale or tax exempt status, please make your order by Phone, Fax or E-Mail, since we do not have this option available on our web site as of this time.
We do not collect tax for most orders shipped out of California. Purchases in our store or online shipping to CA are subject to local sales tax. This tax is not a VAT, and cannot be recovered by non-USA visitors when returning home.
Sales Tax on Digital Goods
For orders shipping to the state of Washington, the law requires that local sales tax be added to the order total for any digital goods item(s) on the order. Digital goods include electronically downloaded software. Full details can be seen here on the Washington State Department of Revenue page.
Government, education, non-profit organizations, public charities, churches and other religious organizations usually qualify for tax-exempt purchases. Once approved, customers may make tax-exempt purchases on behalf of their organizations online at www.MotionMedia.com.
