Gumstix, Inc. is obligated to charge sales tax in any state where the company maintains a branch or office. As such, Gumstix is required to collect sales tax for each shipment sent to a location in California.
Registered Resellers in the State of California and tax-exempt purchasers (e.g. US government) wanting to make a purchase exempt of tax must contact Gumstix's Sales Department PRIOR to making an online order.

Customs, Duties & Taxes for Shipments to a Non-US Destination
Each order shipping outside the U.S.A. may be subject to brokerage fees, duties and government taxes.
The customer is responsible to pay for all and any of these fees, duties and tax as Gumstix does not include any of these costs in our charges.
If a customer is not familiar with the customs fees in their country, they should check with their local customs office for more information before placing an order with Gumstix.
- Brokerage fees are levied by the shipping company (e.g. UPS), or brokerage firm assigned by the customer, to cover the cost of processing the package through customs.
- Taxes are sales/usage taxes levied by the destination country's government. e.g. Sales tax, VAT, HST.
- Duties are special importation taxes that may levied by the destination country's government.
Gumstix ships from the United States with terms defined as "Free on Board (FOB), USA".
If a customer refuses to pay the customs fees when the shipment arrives from Gumstix, the shipment may be returned to Gumstix and Gumstix may be charged the customs fees plus return shipping costs. Therefore, Gumstix does not issue refunds for customs fees, UPS shipping, or the cost of an order if a customer refuses to pay their customs fees, duties and taxes assessed.
It is possible that the delivery of an order could be delayed due to customs processing. If an order does not arrive in a reasonable amount of time, the customer should check with their local customs office or local UPS office to see if the package is being held.
