The final total sales tax will be reflected on your invoice and will include state and local taxes, as well as any applicable rebates or fees. Paul Michael Company is currently obligated to collect sales tax in New York, Kentucky, and Nevada. Each state's tax laws specify what purchases are subject to sales tax. No sales tax is charged when purchasing e-gift cards; however, purchases paid for with e-gift card credits may be subject to tax. For services (spa treatments, club memberships, dining experiences) and tickets to events (concerts, shows) sales tax is generally charged based on where the service or event is held and not the billing or shipping address of the customer. Important Sales Tax Information for Oklahoma, Vermont, and South Dakota Customers: Paul Michael Company, Inc. is not obligated to, and does not, collect Oklahoma, Vermont, or South Dakota sales tax. Your purchase is subject to Oklahoma, Vermont, and South Dakota sales tax unless it is specifically exempt from taxation. The purchase is not exempt merely because it is made over the Internet or by other remote means. The States of Oklahoma, Vermont, and South Dakota requires Oklahoma, Vermont, and South Dakota purchasers to report all purchases that were not taxed and pay tax on those purchases. The tax may be reported and paid on the individual income tax return or by filing a consumer use tax return.
