Are There Any Applicable Taxes?
Sales tax (including VAT) is not collected on any Balsamiq purchases. This applies to all transactions, US-based and international.
With that said, Balsamiq Studios, LLC currently has US sales tax nexus in several US States:
California, Illinois (including the City of Chicago), Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Utah, Washington DC, and Wisconsin.
We are setting up our invoicing system to begin collecting sales tax in these jurisdictions.
Balsamiq is temporarily bearing the burden of this sales tax and remitting the appropriate amounts to each jurisdiction.
If you live elsewhere, please consult with your tax advisers regarding the need to self-assess the use tax on your purchase.
