Sales Tax

Lewis shall add to the purchase price of all taxable items purchased, as required by law, the amount of applicable sales, revenue, excise or other taxes (including any interest and additions with respect thereto) relating to the sale of goods hereunder, and you agree to pay such taxes whenever assessed.  Lewis collects sales tax in states where we have physical presence (or nexus), including Colorado and Illinois.  Lewis also collects sales tax in states that have adopted the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement (SSUTA), including Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.  Lewis does not collect sales or use taxes in any state not listed above because Lewis is not required by law to do so in these states.  If you are a tax-exempt organization or a reseller, you must provide a copy of your tax certificate to Lewis’ Credit Department, either by fax to 847-520-0073 or by email to [email protected], and you must complete the applicable tax exemption form and submit it with your tax certificate to Lewis.  Sample tax exemption forms may be found at lewispaper.com, or you may contact the applicable state tax authority.  Your tax-exempt status will be noted in your account upon verification by Lewis.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Even if Lewis does not collect sales tax from you, you may owe sales tax on the purchases you make from Lewis.  The tax may be reported and paid on your individual income tax return or by filing a consumer use tax return.  For more information, please visit your state's department of revenue website or contact your tax advisor.  The statements in this paragraph are provided for informational purposes only and not as tax or legal advice.
