Frequently Asked Questions
What is sales tax?
Sales tax is a tax placed on the retail price of merchandise. Retailers are obligated to collect sales tax in any and all states in which they are deemed to have nexus (as determined by physical presence or the conduct of certain activities).
Why is The Neat Company charging me sales tax when the company isn’t located in my state?
The Neat Company is obligated to collect sales tax in any and all states in which we are deemed to have nexus. For Neat, nexus is driven principally by the physical presence of our inventory in our retail partner stores (Staples, Bed Bath & Beyond, Best Buy, etc.).
What kind proof do I need to provide to place a tax-exempt order?
You will need to provide a state tax-exemption certificate. The organization or individual name on the certificate must exactly match the name on the order and the certificate must be valid (i.e. not expired). Federal tax exemption certificates are not applicable.
