Winning bidders must pay for and pick up their purchases within 14 calendar days of the auction. Invoices can be collected in person on the day of the auction or will be emailed to the email address listed on your Bidder Registration Form no later than the day following the sale. All purchased items must be paid in full before any items on the invoice can be released. 


Accepted forms of payment are cash, Cashier’s Check, Wire Transfer, MasterCard, UnionPay, or Visa. Items paid by the Cashier’s Check will be held for release to the purchaser for 10 business days following receipt and deposit of the Cashier’s Check to verify funding.

Sales Tax

6% Sales Tax will be collected on all sales made and delivered within the state of Virginia from Oakridge Auction Gallery, located in Fairfax County, Virginia.  The State of Virginia Department of Revenue requires that Sales Tax be charged on the total invoice price, including Buyer’s Premium.  The buyer will be responsible for any out-of-state sales tax due on items shipped.  Buyers purchasing items for Resale, or Tax Exempt Bidders, are encouraged to provide a current Resale Certificate, or Tax Exempt Certificate, before each Auction so that invoices can be calculated correctly.  Sales Tax cannot be removed from an invoice for items purchased in person, picked up in person, or shipped within the State of Virginia without a current Resale or Tax Exempt Certificate.

Reporting of Cash Payments

In order to comply with the United States, Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the United States Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) rules, Oakridge Auction Gallery will file a Form 8300 to report all transactions or related transactions that involve the receipt of Cash or a combination of Cash and a Cashier’s Check, where the total of the Cash or Combination of Cash and Cashier’s Check(s) received in the transaction or related transactions is in excess of $10,000.00. Wire Transfers and Credit Card payments are not considered Cash Transactions.  No reporting is required for:

  1. Non-cash transactions such as Wire Transfers and Credit Card payments.

  2. Cash and/or Cashier’s Check Transactions of $10,000.00 or less.

  3. Transactions where a Cashier’s Check is received in excess of $10,000.00 and Cash received in the transaction or related transactions is $10,000.00 or less.

To accurately complete Form 8300, you will be asked to provide your Taxpayer Identification Number.  If you are a nonresident alien individual or a foreign organization that meets the criteria below, then you are not required to provide a Taxpayer Identification Number.  However, the transaction must still be reported on Form 8300, the address must be that of a foreign address, and a government-issued identification must be provided, such as a Passport:
