If an item is incorrectly priced, we will either contact you for instructions or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation. Prices and availability are subject to change without notice.

Do you report my purchase of precious metals

AGS is not required to report our sales transactions to the IRS or any other federal, state or local agencies unless you fall under the Form 8300 requirement.


Are precious metals taxable

When shopping online with AGS, you may be required to pay state and local sales tax on your purchase, depending on a few variables. Since the laws and tax rates are not consistent across the county, or in some cases even within the same state. Remember to check the state where your order will be shipped, not necessarily the state where you live.

When checking out on Alexandriagoldandsilver.com, all taxable items, and the total associated tax, will be clearly displayed once you have entered your shipping address and shipping method. If applicable, non-taxable items will also be displayed.


Shopping in Store or local shipping in Virginia

In the aftermath of the Wayfair ruling by the Supreme Court, retailers have been scrambling to comply with an incredibly complex set of interstate sales tax rules and regulations. We are currently working with Avalara to implement a seamless sales tax application and collection process on this site. At this time we do not have a sales tax nexus in any state but Virginia.

Effective July 1, 2022 the great state of Virginia has removed all Sales Tax from Coins and Currency. Other items such as jewelry are taxable at the usual 6% rate in Virginia.
