Sales Tax Policy
State and Local Sales Tax
In accordance with applicable state and local laws, we are required to charge sales tax in localities where Ragan & Massey, Inc. has operations. Ragan & Massey, Inc. does not benefit from the collection of sales tax and we remit all taxes collected directly to the appropriate taxing jurisdiction.
As a general rule, it is the laws of the state of delivery that determine whether sales tax will be due on your transaction.
Taxes that appear in your online order confirmation are estimated. Because orders may be fulfilled from multiple locations across the U.S., the actual taxes charged to your credit card will be calculated based on the applicable state and local sales taxes when your order is shipped.
The terms contained herein are subject to change as the taxation of online transactions is continually evolving. Ragan & Massey, Inc. strives to comply with state and local tax laws as they exist currently and continues to monitor and update its taxation policies as those laws change.
