All purchases inside Georgia will include Georgia sales tax (7%). Bob Johnson City adheres to all laws and may collect sales tax from your online purchase depending on whether or not your state has economic nexus laws in place, and if it does, if Bob Johnson City has met the threshold requirements within that state for sales tax collection and payment. Economic nexus laws require online retailers to collect and pay state sales taxes for purchases over a certain number of transactions or revenue made within certain states (those vary by state). These "thresholds" for each state vary according to their laws by amount of revenue, the number of transactions and date these thresholds were met which determines when an online retailer must begin to collect sales taxes to subsequently be paid to the state(s).
Purchases made outside of Georgia in states where there is no economic nexus may still require you to pay sales, excise or other tax for the state in which you reside – it is the purchaser’s responsibility to verify your state/ local municipality for tax policies and collection.

In the event of shipping or freight damage, customer shall keep and safeguard all factory packaging, including, but not limited to, all external packaging, all internal styrofoam, bubble wrap, and cardboard supports. In the event a product was damaged during shipment and proper and timely notification was given to Bob Johnson City, Bob Johnson City will file a damage claim with the carrier. Damage or loss of goods that are outside the control of Bob Johnson City is not to be considered basis for waiver of the cancellation and refused shipments provision contained herein.
