Defender's Annual Warehouse Sale is March 26-29 this year. For those few unfamilar, typically almost everything they have is on sale, typically about 10%. You do pay shipping, but no tax if out of state.
It was in an email I got today. I haven't seen the usual postcard notice yet.Did you get a notice in the mail? I always get one, although the Admiral has been known to throw it out. I haven't seen a notice for this year yet, and I wonder if I need to start looking through the garbage...
Just to be clear, if they deliver out of state, Defender is not required to collect CT Sales Tax. Technically, the buyer still owes tax to their home state, if their home state has one..... but no tax if out of state.
That's definitely true as witnessed by Amazon, which used to be free shipping to almost all states, but now charges tax because they have put distribution and warehouses in most states. It doesn't have to be a "store" in that sense - just a physical presence.I thought Internet sales are taxed everywhere I if there is a brick and mortar store in that state .
I just checked their website and they do indeed add sales tax to orders shipped to NY. That is a very recent change.Last year I was denied the opportunity to not pay sales tax at checkout and have my items shipped to RI. I just called them. LA TX FL are the only states remaining that defender does not collect state sales tax for.
No doubt inevitable. My post was more in line with at PSA for those price shopping and thinking it would be a better deal to take the tax break.This was inevitable. Back in the mail order days, it was lost in state budget rounding. With sales moving to the internet, it’s huge.
