Sales Tax

Is My Order Taxable?

Blue Diamond is required by law to collect sales tax in those states where we maintain an office or business presence as determined by each state.  Due to the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc., as of January 2019, we are evaluating our business presence and/or economic nexus in various states. Because of the changing state laws, we are now required to assess sales tax, depending upon where your order is shipped, to multiple states unless a valid exemption certificate is provided.  The list of states we currently have a business presence and/or economic nexus in includes but is not limited to the following:

Arkansas
Colorado
Georgia
Illinois
Indiana
Iowa
Kansas
Kentucky
Louisiana
Maryland
Michigan
Minnesota
Mississippi
Missouri
Nebraska
North Carolina
Ohio
Oklahoma
Pennsylvania
South Carolina
Texas
Virginia
West Virginia
Wisconsin
Wyoming


For items shipped to other states, it is the customer's responsibility to determine whether they are required to remit, directly to the state, any applicable "use" tax.  You should consult your tax advisor for further information.  If you have any questions or concerns please contact our accounting department at 859-224-0415 and we would be happy to advise.
