Sales tax is a tax imposed by state and local jurisdictions on retailers for the privilege of selling tangible goods to consumers. Walter Drake collects the applicable sales tax on all orders shipped to Wisconsin. Walter Drake do not collect sales or use taxes in any other states. Each state and local jurisdiction has their own calculation and guidelines for what are “taxable goods” and what are exempted. For states imposing sales or use taxes, your purchase is subject to use tax unless it is specifically exempt from taxation. Your purchase is not exempt merely because it is made over the Internet, by catalog 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 tax on those purchases.
