How Sales and Use Tax is calculated:


Stash Tea Company uses tax software to calculate the tax on purchases. The amount of tax charged on your order depends on the type of item purchased and the shipment or delivery address of your order. The tax calculated on your order may change; therefore, "Estimated Tax" is displayed at Check Out when confirming an order. The amounts displayed as estimated tax may then be updated later when your order is finalized and completed.

The tax rate applied to your order will be the combined state and local rates of the address where your order is delivered to. For example, if you live in a state that does not impose a sales tax, you may still see tax calculated on your order if shipped to another state. Food (tea and loose tea - if taxable), may have a lower rate of tax. In some states, if an item is taxable the shipping and/or gift wrapping could be taxable.
