The laws differ from country to country and state to state. In most parts of the world, MathWorks is legally required to charge you a transaction tax—such as sales tax, VAT, or GST—and makes every attempt to assess all applicable taxes during the purchasing process. If we do not charge a transaction tax, you may still be liable to pay the tax yourself. Individuals are not tax-exempt and therefore will be charged tax.

If an item is subject to sales tax in the country or state to which the order is shipped, your total cost will reflect the price of your ordered items, the shipping and handling charge, and the combined state and local taxes.
