Sales Tax

Residents of Nevada

Sales tax is charged on orders shipped to addresses within the state of Nevada at the Washoe County rate of 7.725%

Residents of other states

American Duchess has no physical presence outside of Nevada and therefore is not required to collect sales tax or use tax outside to residents of other states.

The majority of the products sold by American Duchess are subject to your state use tax unless it is specifically exempt from tax; Your purchase is not exempt from taxes merely because it is made over the Internet or by other remote means. If your state charges a Use Tax then you are required to report all purchases that were not taxed and pay tax on those purchases, and that the tax may be reported and paid on your state individual income tax return or by filing a consumer use tax return.

International Orders

For orders placed outside of the United States we do not collect sales tax, however your purchase may be subject to local import taxes, sales taxes and/or customs processing fees. In accordance with Federal Law, all of our international shipments use an integrated USPS Mail label and Customs Declaration (CP72) that contains accurate information about the contents and value of the package. We also attach a copy of the sales invoice to every order to assist your local customs office in clearing the shipment through customs rapidly.

Misrepresenting the value of the contents of a shipment is considered fraud by many governments (including ours, see the Tariff Act, 1930), and may result in both the sender being fined and recipient having their shipment confiscated and liability to prosecution (and fines). We are unable to risk prosecution for fraud in order to reduce your local tax liabilities.
