Q. What if I'm tax exempt?

A. SALES TAX is required to be collected for all taxable customers in our home state of New York. Appropriate local sales tax will be calculated automatically and added to your purchase at checkout.

If the order will be shipping within the state of New York; please email (orders@archivalmethods.com) a copy of your tax exemption certificate. You may also fill out a blanket certificate.

We will apply the exemption to your order once order is received. Orders placed on our website are only authorizations to your payment method. We will only collect the revised amount when the order ships. We will keep a copy of your tax exemption certificate on file for future orders.

*If the order will be shipping outside the state of New York, sales tax will not be added to your order.
