Sterling collects applicable sales tax in states where we are required to do so, currently including CA, CO, IN, KY, LA, ME, MD, MI, NV, NJ, NC, NY OK, SC, UT, WA, and WI. Not all sales tax is calculated on this website; you will receive a sales order acknowledgement from Sterling Rope within 24 hours that will reflect sales taxes, if any.
