Why was I charged sales tax for my order?

STATE AND LOCAL TAXES
Comfort Research, creators of Big Joe does not collect sales or use tax in all states. In accordance with applicable state and local laws, and in localities where Comfort Research, LLC has operations, we are required to collect sales and use tax. Comfort Research does not benefit from the collection of these taxes 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.

Your purchase is not exempt merely because it is made over the Internet or by other remote means. Many states require purchasers to file a sales/use tax return at the end of the year, reporting all of the taxable purchases that were not taxed, and to pay the tax on those purchases. You may have a tax obligation in states where Comfort Research, LLC does not collect sales tax. Details of how to report these taxes may be found at the websites of your respective taxing jurisdictions.

The terms contained herein are subject to change as the taxation of online transactions is continually evolving. Comfort Research 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.
