Sales tax is governed at the state level and no national general sales tax exists. Different states in the United States have different tax law and rules. It is required that sellers collect it at the time of the sale. Therefore, for certain states, Lightinthebox.com needs to charge the sales tax at the applicable rate for our consumers.
