Frequently Asked Questions: Trade Account TAX FAQ Answered
Why is my order being charged sales tax?
If you find that sales tax is being charged on your orders, it is likely one of two reasons:

2.You are drop shipping an order to a different state than your business, and you do not have a resale exemption certificate for that state on file with us.
Signed resale certificates are required for each state in which you seek tax exemption (U.S. only).

Vis-a-vis sales tax, what are the drop shipment guidelines?
Drop shipments into Virginia and Washington, D.C. are always taxable unless registered there.
Drop shipments into California, Massachusetts, Mississippi and Tennessee require certificates from both the home state and ship-to state ln order to claim an exemption as "pass through states". The recipient of the shipment needs to also prove that they are exempt.
All other states will accept the ship-to state's certificate with the seller's state ID number. We encourage the customer to write the words "drop ship" or "home state rule" beside their tax ID number on the forms.
