Tax Exemption & Estimations

Estimate Tax and Postage

Simply enter your zip code and preferred shipping method and you will see an estimate of tax and shipping charges for your order before you proceed to checkout. (Note: estimates are based on standard shipping to addresses within the continental U.S. Tax exemption and promotion code discounts will not be reflected in these estimates.)

The following criteria affect your tax status:

1.    Does Cokesbury have a record of your Tax-exempt certificate? If so, your Cokesbury charge account has been coded to reflect that status. Please use that Cokesbury account number as your payment method on your order. This account number can also be saved to your online profile for future orders.

2.    If a Cokesbury representative is physically located in your "Ship-To" state, we must follow the tax rules of the state, county and city where the item is being shipped. If there is not a Cokesbury presence in the state where the item is being shipped, the transaction is non-taxable.

Tax Exemption

Tax is removed from web orders when you use your tax-exempt Cokesbury charge account number as the payment method. During the Check Out process, select the “Cokesbury Account”  button as your payment method and then enter the name on the account and the Cokesbury account number that has a tax-exempt state certificate on file.
