Territory for Sales
The Afinat Store currently does business with customers in the United States directly through The Afinat Store ONLY. As such policy applies exclusively, applicable sales tax will be added to any order where sales tax must be collected, and such taxes remitted to state revenue authorities as required by law. For purchase of our music by customers in other countries, please visit the CD Baby Store (for certain) or Amazon.com (possibly but not guaranteed, as Amazon's offerings depend on a distribution partner of CD Baby and company policy on stocking CD products) . You may place your order for nations other than the USA on these or any other retailer sites that may have purchased CDs wholesale from Alliance Entertainment Distributors Worldwide and may stock Afinat Records CDs and/or download albums for sale. Such sales are outside our control and will utilize their own established policies for domestic or international sales.
All prices do not include applicable [US] state and/or local sales taxes in the displayed store price. Sales tax is not added until the customer proceeds to the shopping cart to finalize their order. At that time, sales taxes, as required by state laws, will be collected.
