Sales Tax

WHCC Sales Tax 101

We currently have a sales tax nexus in six states: California, Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri, Texas, and Wisconsin. When we ship anywhere within these states, we are required to collect sales tax.

Note: The shipping address is what matters. If your studio is located outside one of these states, but you want to drop ship it to a client within the taxed region, sales tax will be collected. All six states define the taxable point of the transaction for orders shipped by UPS/USPS to be the location UPS/USPS delivers the order. We will calculate the required sales tax for the specific ship to address on each order submitted.

Canada Shipping Taxes

All shipments to the Canadian provinces are done with WHCC as the importer of the product. This means we must collect GST or HST on your invoice based on the value of the products ordered. The exact GST or HST amount will vary depending on the province the products are being shipped to. Shipments will be delivered to the recipient with no taxes or fees due on delivery. For all the details on having WHCC products shipped to Canada, visit our Shipping Options page.

TBD Sales Tax

When your confirmation email says "TBD" for sales tax, this means we have not been able to validate your shipping address. We will be in touch with you if we need further validation.
