Backcountry will charge state and local sales taxes and fees as required by applicable laws. We are required to collect sales tax in states where we have a physical or substantial economic presence.
The amount of tax charged on your order will depend on the type of item purchased and the destination of the shipment. Certain items may be exempt from sales tax, depending on state and local laws. The sales tax charged will be calculated when your order is shipped and will reflect applicable state and local taxes. Factors can sometimes change between the time you place an order and the time of the credit card charge authorization. Those changes may affect how much sales tax you pay. Estimated sales tax applied to your order during the checkout process may differ from the amount ultimately charged. Where and when applicable, Backcountry collects sales tax on shipping and handling fees. Gift cards are not charged sales tax. The appropriate sales tax will be charged on the purchase when the gift card is used.
Backcountry may be obligated to charge additional fees depending on the location where the product is shipped. For instance, Backcountry is legally required to charge a retail delivery fee on all orders shipping to Colorado. MotoSport, LLC, a member of the Backcountry family, is legally required to impose fees on new vehicles and lead-acid batteries sold in certain states.
