Forum rules and no-advertising policy

As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

Board Rules

1. You�re responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the Forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it�details of personal disputes may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it�s understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users� profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses � Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it�s related to a horse for sale, regardless of who�s selling it, it doesn�t belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions � Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services � Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products � While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements � Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be �bumped� excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues � Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators� discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the �alert� button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your �Ignore� list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you�d rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user�s membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

Please see our full Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for more information.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

    EEK! Valley Vet now charges sales tax on rx

    Thought I had a great deal on my Prascend by saving 5% using their Autoship option. Now they tacked on sales tax. Is this new for animal drugs? In my state there isn't a "use" tax on for drugs purchased out of state online, but it seems that animal drugs are taxed. As if it wasn't already expensive....

    I don't think those countries listed would correctly be called truly socialist, although I get your drift. Canada is often referred to as a liberal democracy, which I think is a fairly accurate statement. Horses are a great equalizer - everyone ends up broke! But happy.

    I have never understood rooting for socialism if you are involved with horses. The money you spend on your horse should be spent on humans because that is more fair.
    Riders in Canada, England, France, Germany, Sweeden, The Neatherlands seem to be fine.

    Ditto Virginia on charging sales tax on veterinary prescriptions. I look at it this way: if the cost of the sales tax is going to have a financial impact on my caring for my horses, then I need to get out of horses.

    Depends on your state. Some treat animal RX differently from human RX.
    Veterinary prescriptions have been subject to sales tax in Maine for years

    also note the pain gets larger as the state tax rates are not flat across a state but differ by city/county/or whatever break point a state may have.

    Here you can cross a street and be in different sales tax rate

    Companies are having to go items by item in almost all 50 states to find out what is exempt to everyone, what is exempt on Ag exemptions, and what is always taxable.

    There is no database somewhere with all of this information. Its been a huge headache.

    Yes, that's why I said I was in North Carolina, it was exempt here at least as recently as a couple of months ago and it doesn't appear, at least here, that the sales tax exemption has changed. I'll definitely contact those companies if I see a sales tax charge on any upcoming orders.

    I ordered Prascend from Valley vet in March. I am in North Carolina and there was no sales tax charged. I also ordered Revolution for my cat from Chewy, prescription product, no sales tax. I'll definitely be calling if they charge sales tax on another rx purchase to ask what is going on with that, it would have to be quite a new regulation.

    Absolutely the truth. Many of us are "cheating" on our tax returns whether we realize it or not.

    Our accounting department was told that we had to have it in effect Jan 1. We were late and didn't have it until March. Some states are allowing us to just pay once we collect, others are wanting back taxes. It has been a huge mess.

    They should have been charging sales tax since Jan 1. If they weren't they are having to pay out of pocket in many states.

    Most states don't charge sales tax on prescriptions. I would contact Valley Vet and find out why they are being charged. If what you bought wasn't a prescription, then yes, sales tax is now applicable on internet sales. However, I have been paying sales tax in CA from most retailers already.

    In my state you were required to pay a use tax based on your income. I tried to keep track of untaxed purchases last year but I got way behind and couldn't catch up. This year I started doing it; some states were charging their own amount of tax which differed from NJ's. Just wanted to see at tax time how my actual owed tax compared to the income-based amount.

    Unless you are in one of the "NOMAD" states (New Hampshire, Oregon, Montana, Alaska, Delaware), you will be charged sales tax on your future e-commerce orders from any online retailer that meets the threshhold for nexus within your state.

    As AltersAreUs identifies above, all of this is related to the Wayfair decision in the supreme court. It was meant to give brick & mortar stores a fighting chance for competitively priced goods against the e-retail giants, but it has had significant repercussions for a bunch of industries and is not cohesively thought out as each state has had a different roll-out date, has different definitions (and threshholds) of what entails commercial nexus, etc.

    What it "means" is that online sellers are obligated to charge tax on transactions & register and remit that tax to the state the goods' final destination is. It is a giant pain. Some purchasers are tax exempt (reseller, charitable, industrial/manufacturing) and have specific paperwork to prove it but that is generally allocated at the state level and each state's certification is different. Again, giant mess.

    The short version of it is basically that the days of tax-free online retail is over for good. Consumers can anticipate being charged sales tax from here out unless a retailer falls below the threshhold for commercial nexus in the state you reside in.
