SquadLocker Now Collecting State Sales Tax for Orders

June 22, 2020

Jeanne Hopkins

SquadLocker is responsible for collecting all applicable sales taxes from customers and remitting such sales taxes to the appropriate taxing authorities in each state.

Beginning July 1, 2020, SquadLocker will begin collecting sales tax for orders placed on the platform.  If your order contains one or more items from SquadLocker, it may be subject to local sales tax, depending on the state to which the item is being shipped.

Unless otherwise noted, items sold by SquadLocker are subject to sales tax in select states in accordance with the applicable laws of that state. If your order contains one or more items from a seller other than SquadLocker, it may be subject to state and local sales tax, depending upon the seller's business policies and the location of their operations.

We do not collect sales or use taxes in all states. For states imposing sales or use taxes, your purchase is subject to use tax unless it is specifically exempt from taxation. Your purchase is not exempt merely because it is made over the internet or by other remote means. Many states require purchasers to file a sales/use tax return at the end of the year reporting all of the taxable purchases that were not taxed and to pay tax on those purchases. Details of how to file these returns may be found at the websites of your respective taxing authorities.

IMPORTANT: For organizations with tax-exempt status, tax law requires that only the organization representative placing the order is qualified to receive the tax exemption.

  1. 1. We will need the tax-exempt certificate in order to add it to our system.
  2. 2. We will tie the certificate to the individual listed as "tax-exempt."
  3. 3. When taxes are filed with that state, the exemption is on file as well.

Whew! This is a cumbersome process and why we are using 3rd-party software to help SquadLocker with state tax law requirements.

Please note: The sales tax indicated on the checkout form is an estimate only. The sales tax ultimately charged to your credit card will be calculated when your credit card charge is authorized and will reflect applicable state and local taxes.
