In such cases, the winning bidder’s invoice will reflect the sales tax due based on applicable state and local sales tax rates.

Due to the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair, states are now permitted to require a larger universe of out-of-state vendors to collect and remit sales tax on sales to customers within the state. Consequently, Profiles in History may be required to collect and remit state and local sales tax on certain transactions for the first time.
All bidders acknowledge that their bids are exclusive of sales tax, and that if Profiles in History has a sales tax collection obligation in the bidder’s state, applicable sales tax will be owed by the successful bidder and the invoice issued by Profiles in History to the winning bidder will reflect the applicable sales tax due.
Additionally, any bidder claiming a sales tax exemption (e.g., resale exemption, tax exempt entity, etc.) must provide Profiles in History with the applicable, fully-completed, exemption documentation before sales tax will be removed from the invoice.
