Animoto collects sales tax on all purchases made in NY and WA. If taxes are applicable on your purchase you'll see a Tax amount added to your total on the checkout page. You'll also be charged taxes on all recurring monthly or annual subscription fees.
The sales tax indicated on the checkout form is an estimate. The sales tax ultimately charged to your credit card will be calculated when your credit card charge is authorized and will reflect applicable state and local taxes.
If you are making a purchase from NY or WA and are exempt from paying sales tax, please reach out to our Customer Success team for assistance.
Many states require purchasers to file a sales/use tax return at the end of the year reporting all of the taxable purchases that were not taxed. Details of how to file these returns may be found at the websites of your respective taxing authorities.
