In America, sales tax is charged if the U.S. store has a presence in the state in which the customer resides.
Big Apple Buddy is based in New York so an 8.875% sales tax may apply to your order.
Because we are purchasing the item on your behalf, the full product cost (including the sales tax) gets passed through to you. It’s similar to if you asked your friend in New York to purchase the item on your behalf. In such an instance, you would be paying them back exactly what the store charged them.
To minimize costs, Big Apple Buddy will always try to source your item from a U.S. store that does not attract sales tax.
