Beginning July 1, 2020, GoodHire will collect and remit sales tax in certain states for all customers. Invoice customers will see tax on their invoice sent out on August 1, 2020 for purchases made in July.
Why is GoodHire collecting sales tax now?
In 2018, the US Supreme Court’s decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair changed a long-standing tax rule that only required companies to collect and remit sales tax in states where they had a physical presence, or, “physical nexus.” As a result of Wayfair, states can now require businesses with economic nexus to collect sales tax on out-of-state sales. This means that we now are required to collect and remit sales tax in locations that previously did not require it.
In which states/jurisdictions is GoodHire required to collect tax?
We are required to collect and remit sales tax in the following jurisdictions:
District of Columbia
How do you determine the state sales tax?
We are required to collect and remit sales tax by state based on your business’s billing address. Please note that sales tax is not calculated by your state of incorporation, unless your billing address state is the same as your state of incorporation.
How do I find my billing address on file with GoodHire?
You can find your billing address in your online account portal.
In the section titled “About Your Company” you can view your billing address
Do I qualify for tax exemption?
We suggest that you contact a tax professional or the Internal Revenue Service to determine if your business qualifies for a sales tax exemption. If you have a tax exempt status certificate, please scan and email a copy to GoodHire at: email@example.com
I am tax exempt, but I was charged tax on my GoodHire order. What do I do?
If you make a tax-exempt purchase on GoodHire.com but have not submitted your tax exemption certificate, you have 90 days from the date of purchase to email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a refund.
Once your order is fulfilled and your exemption has been validated, a credit for the applicable tax amount will be applied to the form of payment used to make the purchase. If you used a credit card, please allow up to three billing cycles for the credit to appear on your statement.
