Fuel2Electric automatically charges sales tax to all customers at the checkout.
We calculate, collect, and remit tax on sales made online by vendors shipped to customers located in the states that have enacted Marketplace Facilitator, Marketplace Fairness, or similar laws.
As between the parties, Fuel2Electric will be responsible for the collection, reporting, and payment of your sales taxes when and only when order is paid online.
The amount of tax charged on your order depends on many factors including the following:
- The type of item or service purchased
- The time and location of fulfillment
- The shipment or delivery address of your order
These factors can change between the time you place an order and when your shipment is complete. As a result, the tax calculated on your order may change. The amounts displayed as estimated tax may then be updated later when your order is finalized and completed.
The tax rate applied to your order will be the combined state and local rates of the address where your order is delivered to or fulfilled from. For example, if you live in a state that does not impose a sales tax, you may still see tax calculated on your order if shipped to another state. Moreover, the tax rates applied to your order may also be different for a variety of reasons, such as a shipment to a residential home versus a business address.
Fuel2Electric is not responsible for any tax liability pertaining to the purchase or sale of any product(s) and/or services(s) not paid online.
For information about your personal sales tax liability, we recommend that you seek professional advice. You may be subject to income tax payments based on your gross income from Fuel2Electric’s digital services, and if so will receive a 1099 form.
