The American College of Physicians (ACP) is required by law to collect sales tax on orders fulfilled to customers within states where ACP has nexus. Sales tax is a combined total of state, county, city, and district tax rates (where applicable). ACP remits all sales taxes collected to the appropriate taxing jurisdictions.
If your order is subject to sales tax and it was not charged, you may be responsible for remitting use tax to the proper taxing jurisdiction. Information about use tax may be found on the website(s) of your respective taxing authorities.
ACP will not charge sales tax if a valid exemption certificate is provided.
What kind of proof is required to place a tax-exempt order?
You will need to provide a tax exemption certificate for the jurisdiction where the product(s) or service(s) will be fulfilled. The organization’s name on the certificate must match the name on the order. Tax exemption certificates must be valid and current (i.e. not expired). Please send an email to email@example.com explaining your state tax exemption status along with a copy of your state exemption certificate. We may contact you with any follow-up questions or concerns, if necessary.
If we do not receive your tax exemption certificate, sales tax will be charged where applicable. To avoid any incorrect tax billing, please send us your state tax exemption certificate as soon as possible.
