Our site currently accepts the following forms of payment:

Payment for Internet orders is collected at the time of the order transaction.

Sales Tax
Tax charges are based on state and local tax laws and tax rates for the delivery address of your order. An 8.25% sales tax will be applied for all personal orders (including charges for shipping) with Texas addresses. A 7.00% sales tax will be applied for all personal orders (including charges for shipping) with New Jersey addresses. Sales tax will not apply to tax-exempt institutions.

Sales Tax Exemption
Libraries, schools, not-for-profits, and other qualified groups and individuals may place a sales tax-exempt order once we have your tax-exempt certificate on file.

When you create an account, you must enter your tax-exemption certificate number during registration. Then email ( or fax your state or federal government-issued certificate to 877.688.3226 within 72 hours for verification purposes. Be sure to include the first name, last name, and e-mail address associated with your account.

Your account will remain pending for up to 72 hours until we receive and verify your certificate. If we do not receive your documentation within 72 hours, we will activate your account as non-tax-exempt and charge the applicable sales tax to all future orders.

In most cases, you will only need to fax us your tax-exemption certificate upon registration. Once that certificate is on file, you may place tax-exempt orders with no additional steps. A certificate is only valid for items shipping to the specific state for which it was issued. If you are shipping to a different state or to multiple states, you may need to fax us additional documentation.

Individuals from the same organization must each supply a certificate the first time they place an order. That certificate number is attached to each customer's account for application to future orders.

If there is no tax-exempt number listed on your tax-exempt certificate, or if your state does not issue tax-exempt certificates, please fax your Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) instead.
