Each organization can individually determine their profit margin by setting the selling prices based on their geographical area. Typically, your earnings will increase with each consecutive year of participation. Last year our top 50 groups raised an average of $7,200.

The California Department of Tax and Fee Administration (CDTFA) requires sales tax to be applied to all taxable sales. For organizations outside California please consult your tax advisor.
FOR NON-PROFITS: When working with a fundraising company the CDTFA requires your organization to pay sales tax on goods purchased from Wood Mountain. When submitting the final order, the sales tax applied is based on your local rate and will be shown on your Wood Mountain invoice.
FOR ALL OTHERS: If your organization is not a non-profit, the CDTFA requires you to obtain a seller’s permit and collect and submit sales tax based on your retail price at your local tax rate. Your organization is also required to provide Wood Mountain with a resale certificate. The resale certificate states that you will buy from us sales-tax-free with the intention of collecting sales tax from your customers at the resale amount. After your fundraiser, you are then required to file a sales tax return and submit the sales tax collected.
Please consult your own tax adviser on exemptions and collection of additional sales tax collected over and above the amount paid to Wood Mountain for wholesale products. We strongly advise that you contact the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration directly at 800.400.7115 should you have any questions regarding sales tax.

It is much better environmentally to use a natural agricultural crop and recycle it after the holidays. Real Christmas trees are a renewable, recyclable, and natural product that are produced in the Pacific Northwest USA. The trees are grown as crops, just like corn or wheat, and raised on a farm. Once harvested, new seedlings are planted to replace harvested trees. Artificial Christmas trees are a non-renewable, non-biodegradable, plastic, and metal product most often made in overseas factories.
