Nexus Tax Law
In June 2018, the US Supreme Court ruled that because more and more sales are being done online, that States can create economic nexus laws to help States collect more sales tax and to help brick and mortar stores even the playing field with eCommerce businesses. Since then, many states have passed economic nexus laws. InStockLabels.com is now required to meet the States economic nexus laws and collect sales tax for that state.
If you are being charged a tax from us. It is because:
1. We have some type of physical presence in your State.
2. Your State has passed an economic tax law that we are required to meet based on our sales into that State.
