U.S. Tax Information

Why GovMint.com is now collecting sales tax

 

Due to recent interpretations of state tax laws arising from the US Supreme Court’s opinion in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc., 585 US __ (2018), state sales tax is now required to be collected on many orders. Taxes vary by state, so click on the map of the state you are shipping to, then get the details of what is taxable. The following is intended to provide guidance for our customers but is not intended to be an exhaustive analysis of this issue.  Feel free to call us if you’d like to know the exact amount of sales tax for a specific product.

We can calculate your sales tax by phone.
