WASHINGTON STATE SALES TAX
Sales tax will be applied as required by law in the sate of Washington. This means sales tax is not applied to orders shipped outside the State of Washington, but the appropriate tax will be added to in-state orders. Orders shipped outside the USA are not subject to sales tax, however they may be subject to other taxes and import tariffs. International buyers are responsible for any customs or duties fees that may apply.
INTERNATIONAL ORDERS - CUSTOM FEES AND DUTIES
When a package is shipped internationally, it may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and/or fees imposed by the destination country. We are unable to predict which of these fees, if any, will be applied, and the buyer will be responsible for these fees or taxes so please factor that into your purchase. We are including some general guidelines, but the best bet would be to consult your nearest postal authority. Import duties, taxes, VAT charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges.
By law, we must declare all items at their full price and cannot alter this amount to decrease international custom fees.
If you refuse a shipment from Salish Winds, you are responsible for the original shipping charges, any import fees, duties and/or taxes that are incurred on the package, and the cost of returning the package to us. This amount will be deducted from any refund if applicable. In the instance that the return fee exceeds the amount of the merchandise plus shipping costs, the package will be abandoned and you will not be refunded.
