If you wish to use your refundable deposit towards this purchase, please reply to the invoice and request that we process your payment using your deposit. As long as you do not owe any other invoices or are not currently winning any other auctions, you may choose this option. Please note that if we use a portion of your deposit for payment, your account will be deactivated until such time as your deposit account is brought back to its required level. On occasion, we may use your deposit to process a paid receipt on or before the stated due date.

If we do not receive payment by the due date, your account will be temporarily deactivated pending receipt of payment.

For any taxable purchases, if you are claiming purchases for resale OR if you are tax exempt, please include the appropriate tax form with your payment. The resale and exemption forms can be found on our website by clicking on the Help Menu and then "Forms". All previously submitted resale or exemption forms are kept with individual auctions so you must send a new form with each payment unless your invoice states that we have your tax form on file. Even if we have your tax form on file, your invoice will still be sent with tax and the tax will be adjusted once your payment arrives. We will not refund sales tax paid after a paid receipt has been issued so please ensure that your resale or exemption certificates are properly completed and submitted with your payment. Any requests for refund of sales tax after the sale is completed will be issued a Form 00-985 Assignment of Right to Refund in lieu of a refund of sales tax paid. There will be no exceptions to this policy. Any items taxed with a TERP sales tax includes the 1.5% State of Texas TERP surcharge. NOTE: PLEASE NOTE THAT IN TEXAS, A RETAILER IS NOT REQUIRED TO ACCEPT AN EXEMPTION OR RESALE CERTIFICATE. IF A RETAILER DOES NOT ACCEPT AN EXEMPTION OR RESALE CERTIFICATE, THE PURCHASER CAN REQUEST A REFUND OF THE TAX PAID DIRECTLY FROM THE COMPTROLLER IF THE RETAILER GIVES THE PURCHASER AN “ASSIGNMENT OF RIGHT TO REFUND”.
