What do these rates mean?

  • The combined tax rate is the total sales tax of the jurisdiction for the address you submitted.

  • The jurisdiction breakdown shows the different tax rates that make up the combined rate.

  • While most taxable products are subject to the combined tax rate, some items are taxed differently at the state and local levels, so be sure to apply the correct taxes to your sale.

These are the current rates for the date and time you submitted the address, but may change at any time with new tax legislation.
