Is anyone familiar with HSN tax policy?
Because I ordered something over the phone. I was charged sales tax. Huh? I have NEVER had this charge added to an order….ever. Did you guys know this was common practice by HSN if you place an order with an actual person? :smileyfrustrated:
I have paid tax on anything I order via phone, online, you name it and have done this FOREVER. Some years back, and perhaps still today, taxes were mandated by the state you live in, not the company you order from. If a company does not put tax on your order and they should then the company AND YOU could have trouble. I live in California and each year I pay my taxes my CPA has me sign a statement I paid taxes on ALL out of state orders regardless of how that order was placed. If I did NOT pay the required tax I have to submit it with my filing. Quite common practice.
Hello Edna111, we are required by law to collect sales tax on all orders placed over the phone. Sales tax for orders placed online is dependent upon which state the item is shipping to. I hope this information is helpful for you.
