Q: Why was I charged sales tax?
A: Some states require us to charge sales tax. Orders shipping to California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Michigan, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, and Texas will have sales tax added to the order. If you live in one of these states and are ordering on behalf of a tax-exempt organization, we will remove these taxes before billing you if you have an existing tax-exempt account with us and are paying with a purchase order or a credit card belonging to your tax-exempt organization. Proof of your organization's tax-exempt status must be on file.
If you have not ordered from us before, please fax or mail to us proof of your tax-exempt status.
