Sales Tax

Ford Distributing currently collects sales tax on purchases shipped to Ohio. If you have a valid tax-exemption claim, you must submit a properly completed exemption certificate before ordering. You may access the Ohio Sales and Use Tax Blanket Exemption Certificate by clicking here.

Please click here for other Ohio sales and use tax forms.

Please note:

Make sure that all required fields are completed, including the type of exemption you are claiming. Incomplete forms will not be accepted.

A copy of your vendor’s license is not an acceptable substitute for an Ohio state-approved form.

If you are purchasing items for your own use, we cannot accept a resale exemption certificate. You will be charged sales tax on these items.

Special note for Farmers: Not all items sold by Ford Distributing are covered by Ohio’s agricultural exemptions. Please consult with your tax advisor before submitting an exemption certificate.

Please complete and submit the correct form for the exemption you are claiming to:

Use Tax

Ford Distributing collects sales tax in Ohio only. This notice is for customers who take delivery of merchandise in other states.

Purchases are subject to use tax in other states unless exempt from taxation in those other states.

Purchases are not exempt merely because they are made over the internet or phone.

Other states require customers to report purchases that were not taxed and pay use tax on those purchases. Customers should check their state’s reporting requirements, including available tax forms to be used for this purpose.

Dealers in states other than Ohio may submit a copy of the appropriate state sales and use tax exemption certificate for their state for information purposes only.

Return Policy

Ford Distributing retains the right to determine whether an item may be returned or exchanged, and whether an order may be cancelled. We encourage customers to carefully consider this policy before placing an order since ALL returns, exchanges and cancellations are subject to approval by Ford Distributing. Please contact the experts at Ford Distributing BEFORE placing an order to minimize errors and disappointment.

Prior approval must be given by Ford Distributing before returning an item or order for refund or exchange. Please email [email protected] or call 888-222-8455 (8:30 am – 4:30 pm Eastern time, Monday through Friday).

Generally, Ford Distributing will consider returns within thirty (30) days of purchase. Refunds are made for the cost of the product only; shipping and handling charges are not refundable. If the return is not the result of an error on the part of Ford Distributing, a restocking fee of up to 20% may apply. Most items that are “drop shipped” from the factory to the customer are not returnable; returns of factory shipped items are at Ford Distributing’s discretion and are subject to a 20% restocking fee.

Please note that Ford Distributing cannot accept responsibility for damage incurred after a customer has signed for receipt of merchandise in good condition.
