If you live in a state that does not require sales tax at the time of sale, you may be required to report non-taxed purchases on your state tax return. You may also be responsible for replacement sales tax or use tax. We recommend checking with your state’s Department of Revenue for additional details.
Colorado is the first state to impose a "retail delivery fee" on deliveries by motor vehicle to the state. We have updated our website checkout process to include a line item for orders shipped to the state. Read more about the fee on the Colorado Department of Revenue website.

Tax exemption means you do not have to pay sales tax on products used for an authorized organization, such as government institutions, churches, and non-profit organizations.
To determine whether your organization is tax-exempt, you must contact your state or local taxing authority. If approved, you will be issued tax-exempt documentation that verifies your status.
