Do I have to pay sales tax?

  • If your order is shipped within the state of Minnesota, taxes will be charged (8.025%) to applicable items. Clothing items and textbooks are not taxed in Minnesota.
  • If your organization is tax-exempt, submit your government-issued tax certificate (ST3) to bksnews@umn.edu, and once confirmed by our team, the tax-exempt ID will be accepted when placing your order.
  • University of Minnesota staff or faculty making departmental purchases using a Purchasing Card can use the tax exempt ID provided on their card when placing the order online.
