Marketplace Tax Collection Policy
A Marketplace Facilitator is defined as a marketplace that contracts with third party sellers to promote their sale of physical property, digital goods, and services through the marketplace. As a result, Bezel is deemed to be a marketplace facilitator for third party sales facilitated through Bezel's global marketplaces. Therefore, Bezel has responsibility in some states for collection of sales tax on sales facilitated on its platform. Sellers who sell directly outside of the platform or who sell into states where Bezel does not have an obligation to collect sales tax may still be liable for the tax on those sales.
Marketplace Facilitator legislation is a set of laws that shifts the sales tax collection and remittance obligations from a third party seller to the marketplace facilitator. As the marketplace facilitator, Bezel will now be responsible for calculating, collecting, remitting, and refunding state sales tax on sales made by third party sellers for transactions destined to states where Marketplace Facilitator and/or Marketplace Collection legislation is enacted. In certain states, local taxes are not included in the Marketplace Facilitator legislation; Bezel is not responsible for those taxes.
The Bezel Marketplace Tax Collection Policy is incorporated into and forms part of the Bezel Terms of Service. You agree that the term “Seller” is given the same meaning as in the Terms of Service.
Each Seller shall remain liable for sales tax on its sales in the jurisdictions where Bezel does not collect sales tax and agrees to comply with all required sales tax rules in all relevant jurisdictions. Each Seller shall reimburse Bezel for any damages resulting from his, her or its failure to collect and remit sales tax in any jurisdiction where such Seller is required to do so by law.
