Why am I being charged sales tax when I go to pay for the course?
U.S. laws around sales tax have been evolving rapidly over the last few years. Among other changes, these laws generally require central marketplaces like Teachable (rather than individual sellers using these marketplaces) to collect and remit sales tax to government authorities. These pieces of sales tax laws are known as “marketplace facilitator laws”.
These laws are complex and vary from state to state. Additionally, not every state has passed these laws.
Like EU/UK VAT, U.S. Sales tax is applied based on where your students are located. So even if you’re not based in the U.S., these changes are still relevant if you sell to students in the United States.
U.S. sales tax is applied at the state level, and states have different laws about which products and services are considered taxable in the state. For example, some states tax video streaming services while others do not. Individual states also choose their own tax rates.
Why don't you offer a payment or installment plan?
I believe that "Buy Now, Pay Later" and Installment Plans hurt you more than they help you. Sure, five easy payments of $50 seems like a smaller hit to your budget and even more affordable, but the truth is, these types of payment options don't align with the healthy habits I teach and preach at The Budget Mom.
Having awareness around the reality of how much you are REALLY spending is crucial, and sometimes having a slap in the face moment with the actual cost is necessary.
I know the Building Blocks of Budgeting will help you transform your finances and will be the most helpful tool you can start implementing in your life immediately. That said, I never want you to give in to instant gratification. If you don't have the money to pay for the course upfront, I don't want you to buy it. Yes, you are reading that correctly. Instead, use my free resources to get started, save a small amount from each paycheck (the exact amount you would have paid for installment payments), save the money, and then come back and pay for the course.
This is called becoming a patient spender, which completely changed my spending mindset. Building Blocks of Budgeting is life-changing, but I want to ensure you set yourself up for success from the start!
