Rest assured that we will remove sales tax from your order prior to shipment and you will not be charged sales tax if an exempt certificate was provided.
We encourage you to use your own purchase order form. Please include your PO number, purchasing agent's or buyer's name and authorized signature, phone number, billing address, shipping address, and email address. If all required information is not submitted, the order will be considered incomplete and held until all required information is made available.
