No Sales Tax

We are located in Iowa. By state law, we are required to collect state sales tax as well as any local option sales tax for all purchases made from this web site that are shipped to destinations within the state of Iowa. For simplification purposes, all orders shipping to Iowa destinations will have the Iowa state sales tax + local options sales tax applied (totaling 7.0%) and we will pay any taxes owed.

Shipments going to anywhere other than Iowa will not be charged sales tax (provided that policy is not in conflict with the wholesale manufacturer). Customers living in areas that impose duties, taxes or other surcharges are responsible for knowing the laws of their regions pertaining to those surcharges, taxes or duties and for paying those fees themselves in whatever manner is customary in those locales.

If you buy a portable generator from a major retailer online, you're almost certain to pay sales tax, because they have facilities in every state. If you are outside of Iowa, you will save the sales tax if you purchase from Absolute Generators.
