Only way to not have sales tax is if you are located in a state that doesn't have it.

Not true.

To make up an example, I'm in Kansas, and let's say I do some work for you in Washington. I'm not authorized to collect Washington sales tax, nor should I be, since I don't have a business presence in Washington.

What is *probably* true (I know it is here), is that you are *supposed* to file for a "use tax" when you file your income taxes, which is for this very purpose - so the state gets it's sales tax money. But that puts the onus on you to claim it, rather than me for providing it.

I would have thought the padding would be blue standard. That is what came on my new Douglas with the grey plates.

That may be true. But when I was looking for a new CP this off season, I was in contact with Jeff about getting a Douglas. I was informed that even though Douglas was located in Houston, I still would have to pay Washington sales tax.

He made it sound as if that would be case no matter where I was located as long as that state had an authorized Douglas dealer. (Oregon would be the exception since they don't have sales tax.)

There's the reason why - they do have an authorized Douglas dealer in the state, ergo they have to pay sales tax there.

That's probably my fault - my CP is black so I was specifically asking about black when I called.  I'd imagine blue is the same pricing as all black.

That makes since. I once had a 15" black one and sold it.

Been wearing my 13" Grey with Team Wendy Retro and @Thunderheads gap protection and T-hooks the past month. I have lost about 35 lbs since the start of the year and the Douglas fits me much better than it used to. Still rock my Team Wendied Gold, but I forgot how much I like the Douglas as well. I love great gear.

They may be heavy, but the low profile it gives is amazing. My Gold fits like a glove. I don't think the TW did a lot for the Douglas. It was already low profile, but I was just a gear junkie being a gear junkie when I sent them in together. Now I have two collectors items that can take a shot. Too bad my season is just about done. College ball is over for me and the High School playoffs will be done soon as well.

Checking up on that, yes.  But will probably wait until season is over.

Nice! I bet he can make a new pad , and get you that third piece that would convert it to a 15" if you wanted. The t-hooks are a nice addition too. The only thing I wish they can improve on, is the glue they use to attach the "hook" part of the velcro to the shell pieces. It kind of comes up in parts, not to where it comes off or anything, but it just kind of sticks up here and there around the edges.
