For non-exempt customers with shipment to Massachusetts, please add 6.25% Massachusetts sales tax. For orders submitted via our website, this sales tax is added automatically by the website shopping cart.

For exempt customers with shipment to Massachusetts, please provide LegalPub a properly completed Massachusetts Sales Tax Exempt Purchaser Certificate (Form ST-5) signed by the 501(c)(3) organization with a copy of its Form ST-2 attached. Such forms should be submitted with each purchase unless the “Blanket certificate” box in Form ST-5 part 3 is checked.

The following will require additional fees: orders with more than one ship-to address; orders that are reshipped due to carrier delay; orders that are reshipped because the address is expired, incorrect, insufficient or undeliverable; and upgraded shipping service (if offered by LegalPub).

In lieu of our shipping & handling charge, customers with non-website orders may provide us with their UPS collect account number. Be sure to tell us which level of UPS service you would like us to use.
