Online sales tax laws can be very confusing. The laws are always changing, being reviewed and depending on the country, state, county or city you are in, tax requirements may vary. U.S. online tax requirements are generally the same across the board, but can differ for merchants who sell goods, those who sell services and those who sell both. There may also be special circumstances depending on whether you sell solely online or whether you use a combination of online and a physical storefront.

Although Big Rock Sports ships orders on your behalf, these sales are between you and your customer. The customer will need to contact you about any problems or returns. You have the option to charge your customer with a fee to restock—it’s your choice. In addition to the cost of restocking, you will also need to decide how you want to handle freight recovery with the customer. We recommend that you prominently display your return policy on your site to avoid confusion. Also, any returns will need to be sent back to you, Big Rock Sports will not accept returns sent to our warehouses directly from your customers.
