All study products purchased on GED Marketplace now have state taxes added to the purchase price.
Study materials and test prep products, including the GED Ready® practice test, are taxed depending on each state’s laws. The existence of the tax and the percentage charged is based on the purchaser’s state.
This change was implemented in mid-December when we updated our eCommerce platform. Therefore, you may notice a higher total at checkout, with these taxes now automatically included in your purchase. Students will not see this change as they have been paying tax on GED Ready and other study tools through their GED.com accounts.
Some states don’t have a sales tax. If you or a student lives in one of those states, they will not be charged tax on their purchase. The sales tax percentage will be the same as if you purchased an item from another retailer.
