State/local sales tax
In some areas, location-specific sales tax will be applied to your order when you check out. This will be reflected as a separate line on your invoice, paid through the Tophatter platform.
If you have questions about sales tax which has been applied to an order, and to determine whether you will owe state sales tax on orders where tax has not been paid through the Tophatter platform, please contact a qualified tax professional.
If you have a valid tax exemption, please contact our support team and provide a copy of your certificate prior to making a purchase.
Customs, Duty, import VAT & postage due
Customs, Duty, VAT, and additional location-specific taxes and fees are common on imported items. These are location-specific, determined by your country or region's Customs, border services or postal service, and are not paid through the Tophatter platform.
These types of fees are presented with a "collect on delivery" or "postage due" card or label from the delivery carrier, which must be paid upon pick-up or delivery of each order. These are not charged by, and cannot be reimbursed by Tophatter in any event, such as if the order is returned for refund.
We recommend familiarizing yourself with your local import laws and potential location-specific taxes and fees prior to shopping.
Customs requires merchants to quote the actual value of each item, and we cannot provide order-specific advice regarding Customs, Duty, VAT, and additional location-specific taxes or fees. If you have questions about a tax or fee incurred, please consult your local postal authority.
