Tax Exempt Status and Orders
State law exempts items that are resold in the normal course of business. Material and products used to run your business are taxable. We are unable to automatically exempt taxes during the online checkout process. In order to establish and maintain tax exempt status, Interstate Plastics requires that you provide us with a valid tax exemption certificate for the state(s) where you are located, and that you update and maintain a current certificate, in accordance with state laws and our Terms & Conditions. Sales tax may be charged on any orders placed through the Interstate Plastics website.
Tax refunds will not be provided for orders placed through the cart. In this scenario, you may contact your state's Department of Revenue to request a refund of tax paid. Once valid tax exemption documents are filed and approved by Interstate Plastics, tax exempt orders must be placed over the phone through an Interstate Plastics representative. If your purchases qualify for exemptions, we’re here to help you. Please call (916) 679-5146 for more information or place a tax exempt order.
