Tax, Shipping, and Delivery


Due to Federal mandates (South Dakota vs. Wayfair, Inc.), for those who are not tax exempt WMU collects sales tax in a number of states: Alabama 9%, Illinois 6.25%, Indiana 7%, Kentucky 6%, Louisiana 4.45%, Maryland 6%, Michigan 6%, Mississippi 7%, Pennsylvania 6.34%, Texas 8%. Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia are computed to include applicable jurisdiction taxes as well as state taxes.

Taxes will not be collected for those organizations who have tax exempt status with the United States Internal Revenue service. If your church/organization is tax exempt, please email a copy of the exemption certificate to The tax exemption certificate will remain on file, unless the church/organization is incorporated in a state where tax exemption certificates expire. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to indicate that the purchaser’s church/organization is tax exempt and to ensure that a current tax exemption certificate remains on file with national WMU. PLEASE NOTE: Sales tax exemptions can only be used on orders paid for by the church/organization named on the certificate.

Tax laws regarding subscriptions vary from state to state. Subscriptions will be taxed according to individual state requirements.
