All sales are made from Dovetail Research Pty. Ltd. (Dovetail), an Australian legal entity, and therefore we are a non-resident tax supplier in all other countries, jurisdictions or regions outlined below.
Generally, any applicable taxes (GST, VAT, US Sales Tax, etc.) will be calculated based on your shipping address and in any country, jurisdiction or region where Dovetail is currently registered and obligated to collect tax. A full list of those countries, jurisdictions or regions are below.

Why is my tax calculated on my shipping address?
