SALES TAX INFORMATION
As required by law, we collect sales tax in every state where Transfer Express is registered to do business.
Where required, sales tax will be calculated unless a valid tax exemption certificate has been received. If you have a valid tax exemption certificate, please register below within 10 days of order placement. This will ensure that your account is marked exempt for future orders.
All exemption certificates are subject to review and approval based on state and local laws. Feel free to contact us at email@example.com with any questions.
Please note, Transfer Express does not provide legal, tax or accounting advice. If required, please consult with a tax advisor.
