Texas Sales Tax on Gold & Silver Bullion / Coins

BGASC ships gold and silver bullion to Texas

The State of Texas requires the collection of sales taxes on certain products sold by BGASC and delivered to a Texas address.  These taxes must be collected on (1) copper and palladium bullion products; (2) copper, palladium, and platinum coin products; (3) accessory items; and (4) processed items.  All other products sold by BGASC are exempt from these taxes.

The following definitions apply to products on which taxes must be collected in Texas:

  • Bullion.  Precious metal that is valued solely upon its precious metal content, whether in coin or bar form.
  • Coin.  A small, flat, round piece of metal which is, or has been used as legal tender, with a number showing its value and often a decorative picture.
  • Accessory Items.  Items such as holders, tubes, coin flips, and apparel.
  • Processed Items.  Precious metals that have been processed by third parties into items that are valued on more than their precious metal content, such as statues or colorized coins.

Sales taxes in Texas are calculated at checkout on the BGASC website based on (1) the taxability of products sold by BGASC in Texas set forth above, and (2) the specific tax rates established by the taxing jurisdiction of the delivery address in Texas.  Our sales tax license number in Texas is 3-20544-5724-0.
