To the south of you in the same state, on the Columbia.
However, seeing as you are in the same state, you might get nailed for sales tax.

There is another in a famous western gambling city for essentially the same price(5 cents difference). I have no idea about tax or shipping.

Oh for crying out loud. You people are too damn funny. You might as well talk in code. Yeah, THE KITE CONNECTION and A WIND OF CHANGE are who they're talking about here. I own The Kite Connection. Kent owns A WIND OF CHANGE, and is a very nice guy. Ya know, really, buy em from who you feel comfortable buying from. If saving a few bucks in tax is more important than anything else, then yes, if you are in California you save that by ordering from Nevada. I don't know where you are, but wherever it is, I recommend buying for your LOCAL KITE SHOP if you have one. Anyway, I hope this helps.

Too funny!!

Both myself (awindofchange.com) and Dave at the Kite Connection have the race rods in stock but I too agree, support your local shop even if the price is a couple bucks more, its well worth it an in the end will do more to help kiting grow than saving a dollar or two over the internet. Besides, your local shop should be able to get you the product today! And that really helps in the rare event that you snap a rod on Friday afternoon and are heading to a festival on Saturday. Your local guy will be there to help you out and because of that, deserves to get some of your business, even it he is charging a couple more dollars to try and stay in business. :) :)

BUT....if your local guy just plain refuses to help you our or you happen to be one of the few that doesn't have a local shop in your area, both of us will be able and more than willing to take care of you.

......drat, forgot to code the message....ah well, hope the dual liners aren't listening right now. LOL

Can I get this sales tax thing right.

If you buy stuff from your home state you have to pay tax.

However if you buy out of state will this mean you dont pay the tax?

If this is right sounds a bit strange.

Then again we just have to pay tax over here. Probably well over half of every earners wage go's in tax, incom, vat, fue, etc etc.

Then we can be happy that our government folks can keep nice and happy. Just a thought, maybe they could all buy indoor Revs to give em summat to do in that big room thing thay are always having arguements in.

Here's what happening.
T's business is in a state where there is sales tax.
I live south of her place in another state that does not have a sales tax.
If I go into her shop an buy something, then I show her my state ID, and sign a sheet, and her state does not require me to pay the tax.
Confuse you more?

So, Ken, do you have any unused IDs laying around the house?

To answer the Bear's question, yes we don't have to pay sales tax on stuff that is bought out of state and shipped to us. Every once in a while the politicians get up in arms and say they're going to close that loop hole, but it hasn't happened yet. Once knew of a friend who bought an expensive ring in person and had the shop keeper mail him an empty box just to save on the sales tax.

Cheers,
Tom

That's my understanding. The tax is set by State at the rate they deem fit (maybe some Federal guidelines?) and, where levied, local sales tax gets added on to that.

I'd guess it changes the economics in favour of mail order for high value purchases? Just read a Wikipedia entry on "use tax" which a couple of states appear to be using to plug the gap on 'cross-state imports' but it looks really unwieldy. [source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Use_tax ]
