Tax Information
Tax rates are determined by the shipping address of an order (tax in IL and TX is based on Uline's warehouse address).

State laws require Uline to have exemption certificates from all customers who claim a tax exemption. If the exemption certificate is not received, Uline is required by law to charge tax in all US States and the District of Columbia except DE, MT, NH & OR.

If your business qualifies for a tax exemption, a properly completed exemption certificate must be submitted to Uline's Tax Department. Once we have received your exemption certificate(s), your account will be updated within one business day.

Tax on your order will be adjusted based on the certificate if processed prior to the order invoicing. For a credit of tax on an invoiced order, please contact the Tax Department.

A Uline Exemption Analyst will contact you if the certificate received is incomplete and details will be provided to complete the certificate.
