We do not collect tax for orders shipped outside of New York. Purchases in our store are subject to an 8.625% local sales tax. This tax is not a VAT, and cannot be recovered by non-USA visitors when returning home.
Local Sales Tax :
If the order is shipped within New York State, the law requires that local sales tax be added to the order total including the amount of the shipping charge. If you have resale or tax exempt status, please enter that number in the space provided during the checkout process.
Government, education, non-profit organizations, public charities, churches and other religious organizations usually qualify for tax-exempt purchases. Once approved, customers may make tax-exempt purchases on behalf of their organizations online at www.SPYTOWN.com and enter the tax exempt number in the space provided during the checkout process.
Please email over your Tax Exempt or Tax Resale number to email@example.com and reference your order number at the top of the page.
