Why are you charging me sales tax?

We are required by law to collect sales tax in any state that we hold a physical presence, or "nexus" in. This "physical presence" is loosely defined: It can be ANY location, facility, employee, call center, address, or even one independent sales person in a state. We have established this "nexus" through the employment of an independent sales rep for each of the 50 United States. We are required, and do collect and remit sales tax in each state. The tax, as it appears on your order confirmation, is estimated based upon the base tax rate for your state. Any local taxes will then be added to the total amount in your final invoice.
