Effective January 2, 2024, JHUP will be required to begin collecting and remitting sales tax, GST (goods & services tax) and HST (harmonized sales tax in Canada) on all taxable sales that we process on SHOT’s behalf. The impact on our members will vary and depend on factors such as a member’s address and the goods and services that are available to them. For instance, memberships are taxed as are print subscriptions unless the journal is published quarterly. Electronic products are not taxed as widely as non-quarterly print subscriptions but will be in some jurisdictions such as Maryland. These rules are currently in place for 45 states, the District of Columbia, and Canada. The taxing jurisdictions in these areas consider the sales our responsibility. The five remaining states (Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, and Oregon) do not currently tax the sale of goods or services.

As noted above, starting in 2024 our members may see taxes applied on items sold through JHUP that were not previously taxed. In those cases,JHUP will be paying and reporting collected taxes directly to the respective taxing authority. The state taxing authorities are requiring us to perform these services on SHOT’s behalf. Please be aware that the rules for collecting and remitting taxes can change and SHOT (as well as JHUP) will be responsible for adapting to such changes.
