Sales Tax Information
Effective March 6th, 2019, Fire Mountain Gems and Beads will begin to collect sales tax on orders.
This change is due to the recent US Supreme Court ruling that allows individual US states to require on-line
and direct-marketing businesses to collect sales taxes. Sales tax will be shown in the order total and based on
the sales tax rate of the location the order is shipped to.
If you have a business that requires you to have a Sales and Use Tax Exemption Certificate, you will still be
able to purchase from Fire Mountain Gems and Beads without paying sales tax on your orders.
Soon you will receive an email from a company called Avalara that Fire Mountain Gems and Beads has retained
to maintain our sales tax activity. They will provide you with details and instructions on how to apply for
the tax-exempt status. They will keep your tax-exempt information on file and will follow up with you when
your certification is about to expire. Please be sure to sign up as soon as you get the email from Avalara
because without it we will not be able to sell to you without charging sales tax.
