DO I HAVE TO PAY SALES TAX?

SCHOOL PURCHASE ORDERS:
FFA accepts valid school purchase orders as payment. To begin using valid school purchase orders as a payment method, you must:
- Be an established FFA chapter with a chapter ID number,
- Be an FFA chapter advisor,
- Be authorized by your school to use school purchase orders, and
- Have an established Chapter Account with FFA.
To create a Chapter Account that can use purchase orders, call FFA Customer Service at 1–888–332–2668 and speak to a customer service representative to have your chapter authorized to use purchase orders.
With a Chapter Account, you will be able to use a valid school purchase order to pay for your orders; no credit card required. Simply select the “Net 30 payment terms” option under “Payment Options”. Click the “Check here to agree to the terms” and click “Complete Order”. Orders paid by a valid school purchase order must be sent to the chapter’s “ship to” address that is on file with FFA. All invoices for items ordered with a valid school purchase order must be paid within 30 days of receipt. Accounts that are 90 days past due will be charged a $10 per month late fee.
Effective Aug. 1, 2015, Shop FFA customer invoices will be sent as merchandise is shipped as opposed to a single invoice being sent once all shipments for an order have been shipped. If an order is shipped from multiple locations, an invoice will be sent for each shipment once that portion of the order has shipped and a shipment confirmation has been sent. In addition, if an order includes a backordered item, an invoice will also be sent once the backordered item is shipped.
