Unlike most of my other posts, this one will address an item of business that will affect future purchasing. Unfortunately, effective December 1, 2018, Colorado underwent a sales tax law change yet again. This change is a huge hit for photographers who sell online. BUT, I always strive to give my clients the best services for the best price as conveniently as possible. Here’s a very short breakdown of everything:
Before the law changed, small business owners could claim their residential address as their place of business and simply charge sales tax for that location on everything sold in Colorado (i.e. one simple sales tax rate).
Now, for online sales, business owners are forced to charge the sales tax of the buyer’s location (approximately 30 possible tax codes! Read about this more in depth here.)
Sharon Arnoldi Photography is going to battle this by changing our sales tax license to the studio and ask clients to purchase and pickup directly from the studio. As of now, online gallery orders will only be allowed for out-of-state clients.
All in all, I deeply value my clients first and foremost. My ultimate goal is always to make sure that you love the images and service you receive from our studio. I strive to listen to my clients and work with you depending on your circumstances and needs. If you have any questions about how the new tax laws will affect our services or purchasing, please feel free to reach out to me here.
We are also currently booking for 2019 and beyond. I look forward to hearing from you!
All my best,
