We've MOVED to Oregon! Big news for Californians: No More Sales Tax!

In late 2012, part of the Heeltoe staff made the move to Oregon. For many years, we operated out of two locations; one in Oregon, and one in sunny OC in Southern California. Because of state tax law, Heeltoe was required to collect California state sales taxes as long as we had operation in California, even when most items we sold shipped from Oregon!

This confusing bit of circumstance is now at an end! We have officially closed our California corporation and fully moved to Oregon! Since Oregon collects no state sales taxes, that means NO SALES TAX for ANYBODY, ANYWHERE!

It's a big, momentous day for us here at Heeltoe. As California natives it has always been a home and a huge market for us. But money is money and Californians hampered by sales tax collection avoided paying it by buying from other, inferior stores and paying shipping costs, sometimes from far out of state.

Heeltoe as now deactivated sales tax collection from Heeltoeauto.com and will continue to give you lightning-fast service all throughout the USA, and shipping from Portland to California is really very fast. Even ground shipping is 2-days to Norcal and 3-days to Socal.

As a side effect of this change, there are a couple bits of fallout we expect you'll understand, but we need to mention:

  • Heeltoe can no longer offer Will Call service in Socal. We can provide will call service in the Portland, Oregon area only at this time.
  • Many of our suppliers are in California, and while we are bringing stock to Oregon not everything is in stock here all the time. That might call for us to either drop-ship items from the California supplier and if that is the case, sales tax IS due on the sale. We'll avoid this whenever possible, but if it comes up we'll handle it on a case by case basis.

That's the big news of the day! Please contact us with any question or concerns at all. Heeltoe is Here In Your Corner!
