Sales tax?


I live in peru but am a resident of the US (New York). I went to go buy 5000 credits from you and I getting quoted sales tax? Here is what I was quoted:

5000 Proofread Credits


Immediate access to this product or service is available once payment is approved.



If you are located in New York state as well? Be informed as I'm not subject to sales tax (I live outside the country and only my credit card billing address is NYS). I will be claiming a rebate of sales tax paid to NYS. This means I will be reporting that youu are collecing sales tax from me. NYS requires sales sales tax be paid based on the shipping address of the item being used, not the billing location of the payment form. Is there a way for me not to be chargedc tax from the onset?

Thank you for your interest in Proofread Bot. I have forwarded your request to Clickbank, my payment processor, but their support only works on business days, so it may take a few days to get a response. Peru is a lovely place! I spent some time there a while back and loved it.




I have received an answer from Clickbank, and they confirmed you would need to pay and then claim the NY tax. I hope this wont pose a problem for you:

Thank you for your inquiry! ClickBank has to charge sales tax on any product that is purchased based on a New York billing address. This is effective July 1st, 2011. If the client is a resident of Peru he can certainly claim a rebate for the tax he paid. Unfortunately we do not have an option to eliminate the taxes. Please let me know if you have any further questions! Thank You,
