All purchases are subject to the local provincial/state sales tax, with the following exceptions:
- If you have a tax-exempt certificate approved by MaxSold.
- Gift certificates with nominal values are not charged sales tax, because the tax is charged directly to the user when they redeem it. For example, we do not charge tax on a $50 cash-value certificate to a restaurant, but will charge tax on a $240 certificate to a spa treatment, since it offers a service.
Please note that our 18% buyer's premium is also subject to tax, as required by law.
