If no sales tax is charged, you are still responsible for paying the sales tax to your state where required. The purchase is not tax-exempt because it is made over the Internet or because the seller is not required to collect sales tax. The states of Colorado, Connecticut, Kentucky, Louisiana, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Vermont, and Washington require purchases in those states to review untaxed purchases and, if any tax is owed, file in their respective state or use tax return and pay any tax due. Purchasers in other states not listed may also have the same tax requirements and should check their respective state's tax website for additional information or seek advice from a tax or legal professional.


Please be advised that pursuant to Rhode Island General Laws §§ 44-18-18 and 44-18-20, sales or use tax is due on taxable purchases. If tax was not paid at the time of purchase, the State of Rhode Island requires all customers who use, store, or otherwise consume taxable goods and services in Rhode Island to file a signed use tax return, form T-205. This form is available on the Rhode Island Division of Taxation's website (

Form T-205 is due on or before the 20th day of each month following the month in which purchases are made and must be accompanied by a remittance for the amount due. Checks and money orders should be made payable to the Tax Administrator.
