Most of you, if you follow the news at all, have probably heard of the recent Supreme Court decision in the case of South Dakota vs. Wayfair. This decision has altered the rules about when and why sales tax must be collected.
Currently, EnMart and Ensign Emblem collect sales tax in the states where we have a presence, MI, GA, IL, CA, NV and NJ, as was required by previous tax law. With the advent of the new decision, we will also begin collecting sales tax on all orders that ship to AL, IN, KY, MO, WA and WI. It is likely there will be additional states added to this list in the near future.
If you are currently in one of the states listed above, you can establish your tax-exempt status with EnMart/Ensign by completing the relevant state sales tax exemption form and submitting it to us. This form should be completed in your legal business name. We will begin charging sales tax in the additional six states listed above on October 1, 2018. If we do not have a completed form on file by that date, your account will be charged sales tax until such time as the completed form is on file.
Please be aware that, even though we are currently only adding six additional states, most states will probably be requiring sales tax collection in the near future. Even if you are not in one of the states in which we currently charge tax, it still might be worthwhile to complete a sales tax exemption form for your state and send it to us. All forms are kept on file, and once an account is set to exempt status it will remain so.
For a current list of taxable states, links to their respective exemption forms, and for submission of your completed forms, please visit our Sales Tax Exemption Forms and Links page.
As always, our goal is to remain compliant with all applicable laws and regulations.
Thank you for your assistance and cooperation.
