Important Sales Tax Information

Rodale is required to collect sales tax in states where it has a physical presence. Sales tax is added to orders delivered in California, Illinois, Michigan, New York, and Pennsylvania, based on the appropriate rate of sales tax in each state. Federal (and, where applicable, Provincial) tax is added to all orders delivered in Canada. Note: If applicable taxes are required, they are calculated and charged to your credit card or account and will be reflected on the invoice statement if applicable.

Some items purchased from Rodale may be exempt from sales tax, even for those states where Rodale has a physical presence.

Should your order include sales tax, and it is being delivered to a state where Rodale does not have a physical presence, tax is being charged because your state has required Rodale to collect their sales tax.

Please note, you may be required to pay sales tax and file a sales tax return for certain purchases made from Rodale, even if your order does not include sales tax charges. Please consult your city, county, and state sales tax authorities to determine whether you are required to pay sales tax on any purchases made from Rodale.

Specifically, if you are a resident of Colorado, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Tennessee, South Dakota, or Vermont, Rodale is required to notify you of the following: (1) Rodale is not required to and does not collect sales tax on orders shipped to your state; (2) Purchases shipped to your state are subject to sales tax unless there is a specific exemption; (3) Purchases are not exempt from sales tax merely because the purchase takes place over the Internet or other remote means; (4) Purchasers in your state are required to report all purchases that were not taxed and pay tax on those purchases. Please consult,,,, or, as appropriate, for more information, including applicable forms and filing rules.
