Good news, all orders on overkillsolar.com can now be tax free!
How is this possible you ask? Because we are no longer shipping items from California, we are not obligated to collect tax for any states other than Florida. *
But what about Florida sales taxes? The Great State of Florida™ offers a sales tax exemption for any purchase of equipment to be used in a solar power system. Read tax information publication TIP_19A01-09 from the Florida DOR for more details: Florida Solar Tax Exemption (TIP_19A01-09)
We now have this tax exemption applied by default on the checkout page for all orders that are shipping to Florida. If your order is NOT to be used in a solar power system, you must uncheck the checkbox so that the proper sales tax can be applied to your order. Otherwise we will record your certification and acceptance of the tax exemption.
*Note: As always, all individual taxpayers are expected to file and pay “use tax” on items that they purchased online if the merchant doesn’t collect taxes for their home state. You do pay your use tax on out of state purchases, right? RIGHT?
As you may have seen on the news, most of southwest Florida got trashed recently. The Overkill Solar main office and warehouse are undamaged, owing to their bomb-shelter-like construction. Unfortunately, the shop is without power (ironic, we know). UPS, USPS, DHL, etc are not making pickups because all the roads are flooded. When the flood waters recede and the carriers start moving again, we will get back to work shipping out your orders, so that you may be better prepared. In the meantime, cells will continue to ship normally from the California warehouse and customer support will be online from the St. Louis office.
1.) It’s the morning of Friday September 30, 2022. The Overkill Solar Naples office weathered the hurricane beautifully. Parts of Naples have heavy damage from flooding. We got lucky, as 30 miles to the north, large areas of Bonita Springs, Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Pine Island, and Sanibel Island are totally destroyed. We are starting to fill orders today with the office running on Overkill Solar batteries. I don’t know whether any of the carriers will actually be picking up packages today.
2.) It’s the morning of Monday October 3, 2022. Our electricity came back on last night and we are catching up on all of the orders. We expect to be up to date by Tuesday.
3.) Thursday Oct 13, This part of Naples is back to normal, and we are up to date on fulfilling orders.
