Information on how for what situations we may collect sales tax.
Local Sales Tax
Stored Energy Products, Inc. is located in Florida and maintains inventory in Florida and is obligated to collect sales tax on any items shipped to destinations in Florida. We are not obligated to, and do not, collect sales tax on orders shipping to destinations outside of Florida.
If tax has been charged on a recent order and you need to take advantage of your tax exempt status, Customer Service can facilitate a refund. We require a copy of your
Florida Resale Certificate and your Seller’s Permit
Please submit the necessary information by fax or email in order to receive a refund of Florida Sales Tax. Our fax number is (866) 819-6035. Please include the following:
♦ Your order number
♦ E-mail address
♦ Acceptable proof of your exempt status (as outlined above)
♦ The name of the organization that purchased the items
♦ If faxing mark your fax "Attn: Stored Energy Products, Inc. Tax Exempt"
United States Government Purchasers
Sales tax does not apply to purchases made by the United States Government. In order to document that a sale has been made to the U.S. Government we need to obtain a copy of one of the following:
♦ Federal tax ID certificate
♦ Certificate of exempt status
♦ Photocopy of your qualified U.S. Government Credit Card (Smart Pay Card)
♦ Government Voucher
We do not collect sales or use taxes in all states. For states imposing sales or use taxes, your purchase is subject to use tax unless it is specifically exempt from taxation. Your purchase is not exempt merely because it is made over the Internet or by other remote means. Many states require purchasers to file a sales/use tax return at the end of the year reporting all of the taxable purchases that were not taxed and to pay tax on those purchases. Details of how to file these returns may be found at the websites of your respective taxing authorities.
