State Sales Tax

With the recent economic nexus laws, Home Science Tools is required to collect and pay sales tax in a number of states. Sales tax liability is based on the ship-to address, not the bill-to address. We will collect sales tax on all orders shipped to these states unless the purchaser provides us a valid exemption certificate for that particular state.
