Local Sales Tax:
Most of the items we sell are clothing and clothing is not taxable in Vermont. However, non-clothing items such as diaper pail liners, wet bags, wipes and Eucalan are taxable at 6%. The shopping cart system will calculate this correctly.
Some communities in Vermont have an addtional local option tax on the taxable items. Our system cannot figure out how to add the 1% option tax by community. If you pick up your order in Brattleboro, the local option additional tax is due on the non-clothing items but has not been added to the shopping cart calculation. Like other small businesses, the accounting burden this local option tax places on us is an expensive technological challege. The software required to handle the local option tax costs much more than any tax we could actually collect, by far. Thus, we pay your local option tax for you. We are not able to collect it in a reasonably achievable way with the currently accessible technology.
"The town of Brattleboro has adopted a 1.0% local option sales tax which will begin on July 1, 2019. The additional 1.0% local option sales tax will apply to all sales that are subject to the Vermont Sales Tax, currently 6.0%. All exemptions that apply to the sales tax will also apply to the local option tax.
Local option sales tax, like sales tax, is collected on a destination sales basis. The Brattleboro local option sales tax will apply to all taxable sales where the purchaser takes title and/or possession of the goods within the political boundaries of Brattleboro. Vendors located outside of Brattleboro who make deliveries to customers in Brattleboro will be required to collect the Brattleboro local option sales tax."
