Local Sales Tax
When an order is shipped within New York State, the law requires that local sales tax be added to the order total, including any shipping charges.
Purchases in our store are subject to an 8.875% local sales tax. This tax is not a VAT and cannot be recovered by non-USA visitors when returning home.
If your order is shipping to an address in a state which requires local sales tax collection on remote purchases, or is being picked up in our Manhattan SuperStore, local sales tax will be automatically collected unless the account is registered as tax-exempt. In some cases, we may provide an estimated sales tax amount until your exact location is finalized prior to order completion.
Important information for California customers: we are legally required to collect Covered Electronic Waste Recycling Fees ("eWaste" fees) on the retail purchase or lease of "covered electronic devices" (CEDs), which are video display products that the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) has determined to be hazardous when discarded. These products include computer monitors, laptop computers, portable DVD players with LCD screens, "bare" cathode ray tubes (CRTs) and devices containing CRTs, televisions with LCD screens, plasma screens, or CRTs. The fee is variable, depending on screen size:
- More than 4 inches, but less than 15 inches = $4
- Greater than or equal to 15 inches, but less than 35 inches = $5
- Greater than or equal to 35 inches = $6
If you are shipping items to a California zip code, you will see these fees as itemized components in your order tally. For more information about these regulations, go to https://www.cdtfa.ca.gov/taxes-and-fees/ewfaqsgen.htm.
