Sales Tax

The law requires the Great Books Foundation to collect sales tax in Arizona, California, Colorado, the District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Washington. Individuals cannot claim tax-exempt status. Only nonprofit organizations with a tax-exempt ID number can claim tax-exempt status.

Schools in Arizona, California, North Carolina, and Washington are not tax-exempt and are therefore subject to sales tax.

Tax-exempt organizations in states that are subject to sales tax must contact customer service at or 800-222-5870 before placing an order.

Canadian customers are responsible for any taxes and fees charged by Canadian customs.
