Buyer’s Premium and Sales Tax

A buyer’s premium will be added to the hammer price of each lot sold. The buyer’s premium is equal to 25% of the hammer price as well as a 2% premium paid to Invaluable on all successful online bids. Additionally, in most cases, you will need to pay Virginia sales tax of 6% on the purchase price of the item. The purchase price is equal to the hammer price plus the buyer’s premium. Kindly notify us in advance if you are exempt from paying sales tax. In that case, we will need a copy of your Sales Tax Exemption Certificate for our files.
