Current law requires us to collect sales or other applicable state taxes, based on the order's "ship to" address, in those states or jurisdictions where Boston Proper has an established business presence. Some states assess sales tax on shipping and handling charges as well. All applicable taxes will be clearly displayed on your final order confirmation receipt. Boston Proper is not required to and does not collect sales or use taxes in all states. Boston Proper currently collects tax only in Florida and Georgia. For all other states imposing sales or use taxes, your purchase is subject to state use tax unless it is specifically exempt from taxation. Your purchase is not exempt merely because it is made over the Internet, by catalog or other remote means. You are still responsible for tax on your purchase. Most states require purchasers to file a sales/use tax return to report any purchase that was not taxed and pay tax on the purchase. Details of how to report and pay tax to your state may be found at your state taxing authority's website.
In addition, the states of Kentucky, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Vermont require us to provide the following additional information:
For Kentucky purchasers: Boston Proper is not required to and does not collect Kentucky sales or use tax. Your purchase may be subject to Kentucky use tax unless the purchase is exempt from tax in Kentucky. The purchase is not exempt merely because it is made over the Internet, by catalog or by other remote means. The Commonwealth of Kentucky requires Kentucky purchasers to report all purchases of tangible personal property or digital property that are not taxed by the retailer and pay use tax on those purchases unless exempt under Kentucky law. The tax may be reported and paid on the Kentucky individual income tax return or by filing a consumer use tax return with the Kentucky Department of Revenue. These forms and corresponding instructions may be found on the Kentucky Department of Revenue's Internet Website: http://revenue.ky.gov/
For Oklahoma purchasers: The tax may be reported and paid on the Oklahoma individual income tax return or by filing a consumer use tax return. The referenced forms and corresponding instructions are available on the Oklahoma Tax Commissioner website: http://www.tax.ok.gov/
For South Dakota purchasers: The tax may be reported and paid on the South Dakota use tax form. The use tax form and corresponding instructions are available from the South Dakota Department of Revenue website: http://dor.sd.gov/

Note: State sales and other tax rates are subject to change at any time.
Boston Proper will also collect applicable sales and other applicable state taxes in any other state or jurisdictions after a new Boston Proper Boutique opens in that state or jurisdiction.
