The total cost of your puppy will need to include the State of Illinois, County of Clinton sales tax of 6.25%.
I am a legitimate breeder and I record all puppy sales, I have an accountant who does my year-end taxes and has access to my accounting records at all times (any day of the year), she has online access.
I am required by law to collect sales tax on any puppy sale done within the State of Illinois.
If I meet you outside the State of Illinois, you do not have to pay sales tax.
The best part...if you have your puppy flown, the fee is waived because it is an online transaction. This applies to me flying to you or if you come and fly into St. Louis Airport and I meet you. Similar to Amazon.com where you do not pay sales tax; the same rules applies.
Please contact me first before sending an online payment...
I try to keep this website updated as much as possible but I do want to ensure the puppy you want is available and I know a little about you before I receive payment.
I like to meet everyone in person so that we can start that relationship. Getting to know my future puppy owners and build a relationship that lasts for years is important for us!!!
We have flown our puppies all over the country and love to enjoy mini-vacations. I am able to hand-delivery your puppy to you. I do not fly my puppies out-of-country...as I do not have a passport myself so obviously this would be difficult for me. Each country has their own regulation and rules, this is not something I get involved in. I do, however, love to travel in the U.S.!!!
