What is changing?

In compliance with the November 1, 2019 BACB updates impacting the 40-hour RBT course and the 8-hour Supervision course, CentralReach is sunsetting legacy options in CentralReach Learn.

Will this affect the RBT Feature Key?

Other Sales Tax FAQ

Why are you now applying sales tax on my invoice?

Due to the 2018 Supreme Court decision in South Dakota v Wayfair, companies purchasing software in applicable states must apply sales tax. (Five states do not have state-level sales tax: Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, and Oregon).

Sales tax is required by law. Organizations who are not charged sales tax on their invoice are still responsible for use tax and will need to remit sales tax to their state/locality. In compliance with the SCOTUS decision, and because of CentralReach’s rapid growth and presence across the United States, we are taking responsibility to collect and remit government-mandated sales tax.

I’m a nonprofit, do I have to pay?

It’s wonderful that you’re doing nonprofit work! Please submit your tax exemption form to accounts.receivable@centralreach.com, so that we can get it added to your account. That way, we can ensure you are not charged sales tax.

Is there any action I need to take?

Sales tax will automatically appear on your invoices moving forward. To ensure that sales tax is accurately calculated, please ensure that your billing address is up-to-date. That address is used by our software to determine the appropriate sales tax as determined by your tax jurisdiction.

The contact we have on file for CentralReach invoices will receive an automated email from NetSuite with an invitation to the customer portal. In this customer portal, you can update billing information, download and print invoices, update your credit card information, and more.

To ensure you are taxed correctly, check the billing address on your most recent CentralReach invoice and update it in the customer portal, if needed. If your organization has not received an invitation to the customer portal, please contact your CSL for assistance.

How much will the sales tax be? Can you calculate the sales tax for me?

The sales tax is based on applicable laws in your state and locality. You may be able to estimate sales tax based on the percentage that you pay on similar goods as defined by your state and local tax authorities. As with other goods, your sales tax may change based on the laws in your state and locality. Unfortunately, due to the regular fluctuation of sales tax, we cannot estimate your sales tax.

What should I do if I do not receive my invoice?

Please contact your CSL if you do not receive your invoice via email. In the near future, we will have a customer portal where you can view your invoices in a simple, streamlined way.
