No Sales Tax For US Orders (except CA)

We are required to charge sales tax on orders shipped to a California address. The appropriate tax will be added to your order after a shipping address is entered during the checkout process.

We do not collect sales or use taxes in any state outside of California. Many states require purchasers to file a sales/use tax return at the end of the year to report any purchases that were made without tax and to pay the appropriate tax. Please check with your tax authority for details or more information.
