Q: Why do you or don’t you charge sales tax?

A: Most states require that taxes must be collected on sales transactions between residents and merchants that are both physically located in that state.

We have a physical  presence, or nexus, in Louisiana.  When we ship orders to residents of Louisiana. We are required by law to collect the applicable state sales taxes and pay them to the taxation authority in the respective state.

Occasionally, we may also be required to collect sales taxes for other states, under certain conditions. Any time that we have a legal obligation to collect state sales taxes, we add the appropriate charges to the order and inform you of such.

Contrary to what you may have heard, there is no moratorium or ban on collecting sales taxes for orders placed over the Internet. The Internet Tax Freedom Act of October 21, 1998 only restricts the states from applying multiple or discriminatory taxes on Internet commerce. In other words, it prevents the states from passing new types of Internet-specific sales taxes, but it does not exempt Internet transactions from previously enacted state sales tax laws. The Internet Tax Freedom Act provides this protection through October 21, 2001.

If you or your organization have been approved for tax-exempt status in your state, please contact an Action Import Motors Customer Service Representative Toll Free at 1-888-352-7743.

Q: What is your return policy?

A: At Action Import Motors, we want very much want you to have a satisfactory shopping experience with us. Occasionally, an item will need to be returned and we have tried to make that process as simple as possible. To read our detailed Return Policy, click here.
