Why Was I Charged Tax On My Order?

For US Buyers:

State sales tax will be charged on applicable orders with a shipping destination in the states listed here. This is not something Reverb put in place independently - all online marketplaces are required to follow these laws and is not something Reverb is able to opt-out of.

For more information, check out How State Sales Tax Applies to Reverb Orders and read how the precedent set by the South Dakota v Wayfair, Inc. Supreme Court decision changed taxes on remote sales here.


For UK Buyers:

Beginning January 1, 2021, Reverb is required to collect VAT from buyers on orders that meet the following criteria:

  • The buyer is located in the UK.
  • The goods are dispatched from outside the UK.
  • The total value of the package (excluding delivery) is less than or equal to £135.

Please note: After the buyer completes payment for their Reverb order, VAT has been paid in full and no additional VAT payments are required.

This is a requirement set by the UK's HMRC that applies to all online marketplaces. For more information, you can check out this article by our tax partner, Avalara.
