Important Sales Tax Information!
See the Auction Bidder Notice for more information and a printable version of this sale tax notice.
Massachusetts requires PHSNE to collect the 6.25 percent state sales tax from buyers at the organization’s auctions. If you plan on bidding in PHSNE-sponsored auctions and enjoy a tax exemption, you must provide PHSNE with a copy of your tax certificate. This is true whether you live in Massachusetts or some other state. The certificate number alone is not enough: Massachusetts requires PHSNE to have a copy of the actual certificate on file.
You need provide the certificate only once; PHSNE will keep your certificate on file for reference at future auctions. You can mail or e-mail a copy of your certificate any time prior to an auction, or bring a copy with you to the auction. PHSNE is required to collect the 6.25% state sales tax from any winning bidder who does not have a certificate on file.
You may send a copy of your certificate to:
Photographic Historical Society of New England
PO Box 650189
West Newton, MA 02465-0189
or e-mail a scan to firstname.lastname@example.org.
