Sales and Use Tax on The Forge

Tax on Forge Products/Services

Like most companies, purchases made on The Forge are often subject to tax. The tax rate varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, as does which products are taxed.

As The Forge expands and grows, we become required to file tax in more jurisdictions. We will always send a warning email to affected users beforehand, for ongoing subscriptions. This article will be updated for each new jurisdiction, or change in taxable status of our products.

Warning: We advise users to always double check their invoices, if they are concerned about an increase in price due to the charging of tax. When in doubt, the invoice will be accurate over this article.

This article does not constitute advice on tax law/policy.
