Grailed is required by law to collect state sales tax in all US states (including Washington, D.C.) excluding for those residing in Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire and Oregon.
As a buyer, you may see sales tax applied to your purchases depending on where you live in the US. The sales tax will automatically be applied during checkout, and then paid to that specific state’s government. Grailed will handle all processing, so whether you’re a buyer or a seller, there’s nothing you need to do differently.
It's important to note that this is not a Grailed fee, but rather a law mandated by certain states within the US. Grailed does not profit from this tax and has no say in how much is charged. All Grailed does is collect the required tax and pass it over to the state government.
I’m not located in the US. Does this affect me?
If you’re a buyer located outside of the US, you will not be charged US state sales tax on purchases made from a US based seller.. However, you may still be charged a VAT/GST or similar tax depending on where you live. Check our article on International Taxes on Transaction for more information.
