1. This webpage is designed as an aid for calculating New York State sales tax. Since EarthOdyssey, LLC is a company based in New York, we are required by law to collect and remit sales tax on all items shipped to a New York State address. If the purchase is from outside of New York, the laws of your particular state may require payment of a use tax.
2. You must select the shipping destination, either a county or city, as well as the purchase amount. The sales tax will then be calculated.
3. Sales tax is generally based on the county rate, with a few exceptions. Together with the state rate of 4.00% (a decrease from 4.25% on June 1, 2005), and in some counties a transit rate of 0.375% (an increase from 0.25% on June 1, 2005), the total combined rate can range from 7.00% (several counties) to 8.75% (Oneida County and Erie County).
4. Sales tax is calculated based on the cost of EarthOdyssey ™ pulling tool(s) purchased including shipping and handling charges. Since transfer of title
takes place at the point of delivery, the sales price on which sales tax is calculated includes the cost to deliver the purchased product to the new owner. In effect the sale doesn't take place until delivery.
5. A general purpose sales tax calculator is also provided to calculate sales tax in New York State for any purchase cost, in any taxing jurisdiction.
