At Pakapalooza, we strive to be transparent about our sales tax policy and ensure that we comply with state and local tax laws. This policy explains when and why we collect sales tax on your purchases.
An 8% sales tax will be applied to all orders shipped to any New York State address. If you live in a state other than New York, you may still owe sales tax on your purchase, even if we do not collect it at the time of sale. Most states require purchasers to report and pay tax on all purchases that are not taxed at the time of sale. You may be required to report and pay this tax on your individual income tax return or by filing a consumer use tax return.
We do not charge sales tax on the purchase of Gift Certificates; however, items paid for with Gift Certificates will be taxed if shipped to addresses in states or regions that require sales tax to be collected.
We strive to comply with state and local tax laws as they exist currently and continue to monitor and update our taxation policy as those laws change. For more information on sales tax laws in your state, please visit your state’s department of revenue website.
