The Longmont Winair Co gladly extends open account privileges to all qualified applicants according to, and in support of, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act and the Fair Credit Reporting Act. The ECOA prohibits creditors from discriminating against credit applicants on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, age (provided that the applicant has the capacity to enter into a binding contract), because all or part of the applicant’s income derives from any public assistance program, or because the applicant has, in good faith, exercised any right under the Consumer Credit Protection Act. The Federal Agency that administers compliance with these laws is the Federal Trade Commission, Division of Credit Practices, 6th St and Pennsylvania Ave, N.W., Washington D.C. 20580.
CREDIT CARD ACCEPTANCE
The Longmont Winair Co promotes the use of major credit cards at the point of sale, at the same fair price as cash or open account transactions.
SALES TAX POLICY
As a wholesale distributor, it is our responsibility under the law to collect sales and use taxes on behalf of the various tax jurisdictions in which we do business. These state and local governments understand that certain of our customers may be exempt from paying sales and use taxes, or that they may be allowed to pay these taxes directly to the appropriate jurisdiction. For us to refrain from billing and collecting appropriate taxes, we must have on file a valid exemptions certificate for the specific purpose or type of purchase, depending on circumstances. We ask, in advance, for your cooperation in helping us comply with state or local laws.
If you have a valid blanket type sales and use tax exemption, or you are allowed by your state or local government to pay their taxes directly to them, you will have been given a certificate specifically worded for that purpose. Please send a copy of that certificate to us immediately, to avoid any billing problems. If you do work for an organization that is tax exempt, and if that exemption can be passed on to you for that transaction, you must have a valid exemption certificate, also specifically worded for that purpose. Please provide that certificate to us at the time you place your order.
In any circumstances in which we do not include tax on an invoice, and then determine that we do not have a valid certificate, we will retroactively bill the appropriate sales or use tax.
Note: A license to collect sales tax is not the same thing as a tax exemption. Any valid certificate will contain words like, or similar to, “exemption,” “exempt,” “for re-sale,” “pay directly to,” or “non-taxable.” If you have any questions concerning your taxable status, please contact your state or local taxing authority.
1.) To our approved customers, we sell on open account.
2.) The payment due date is the first day of the next month. To encourage prompt payment, we give a 1.5% cash discount when the account is paid on or before the 10th of that next month. Payments must be applied to the oldest amounts owed. No discounts can be taken on past-due accounts.
3.) On the last day of that same month, an account becomes delinquent. Then, we must start a service charge, because we must borrow money to pay for the goods you have received. This service charge is 1-1/2% per month. This first service charge is not added to your statement until 30 days after the due date.
4.) Sixty days after the due date, if an account is still unpaid, that account can buy additional material on a C.O.D basis only. Like you, we must pay for our purchases, when you promptly pay us what you owe us, we can carry a larger inventory, and we believe this helps you more than any other service we can provide. If you do become delinquent, there might be an acceptable reason. If so, please tell us, and we will do our best to work out some way to help you. Your continued goodwill and support is sincerely appreciated, and we look forward to serving you for many years.
