COLORADO SALES TAX: For those customers purchasing from Art & Artifact and shipping to Colorado:

We are not obligated to, and do not, collect Colorado sales tax. Your purchase is subject to Colorado sales tax unless it is specifically exempt from taxation. The purchase is not exempt merely because it is made over the Internet or by other remote means. The State of Colorado requires that the taxpayer file a sales/use tax return at the end of the year reporting all of the purchases that were not taxed and pay tax on those purchases. Retailers that do not collect Colorado sales tax are obligated to provide purchasers an end-of-year summary of purchases in order to assist purchasers in filing their tax report. Details of how to file this return may be found at the Colorado Department of Revenue's website, www.taxcolorado.com. Retailers that do not collect Colorado sales tax are required by law to provide the Colorado Department of Revenue with a report of the total amount of all of your purchases at the end of the year above certain thresholds set by the Colorado Department of Revenue.

Some customers have asked why these new requirements exist. We are required to provide the notice and the reports described above based on a Colorado law (HB 1193) enacted in February 2010 over strong objections. It was signed by Governor Ritter, and the legislators who voted for this law are: Senators Bacon, Boyd, Carroll, Foster, Gibbs, Heath, Hodge, Hudak, Johnston, Keller, Morse, Newell, Romer, Sandoval, Shaffer, Steadman, Tapia, Whitehead, and Williams, and Representatives Apuan, Benefield, Carroll, Casso, Court, Ferrandino, Fischer, Frangas, Gagliardi, Hullinghorst, Judd, Kagan, Kefalas, Andy Kerr, Labuda, Levy, McCann, McFadyen, Merrifield, Middleton, Miklosi, Pace, Peniston, Pommer, Primavera, Riesberg, Ryden, Schafer, Solano, Soper, Todd, Tyler, Vigil, and Weissmann.


Orders Shipped to Canada: Add $ to standard shipping cost. Choose "Canada" as shipping method.


Inventory Availability: Although we do our best to communicate our inventory availability during your shopping experience, there may be some instances where, as the order is being processed, we may need to adjust the status of your order. In some cases, we may need to cancel items from your order if they are discontinued and we have none in stock to ship. We apologize for any inconvenience this practice may cause you. Please know we are constantly working to improve our website functionality. We thank you for your business.
