Why does your site charge tax in states that you do not have a branch location?
Modern Builders Supply, Inc. has three business units - a distribution business with 27 distribution centers plus 1 Central Distribution hub. We distribute building products in the following states: Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, West Virginia, Indiana and Kentucky. We also manufacture under the brand name of Polaris Windows & Doors, which produces vinyl windows, steel and fiberglass entry doors, that we sell in 23 states.
Because we sell and deliver
products outside of our branch network in the additional states listed below, we have what is called nexus in those states. Nexus requires by law, Modern
Builders Supply, Inc. to collect sales taxes in those states for our third
business unit - our Online Store.
