Effective, 8/8/2023, ONS will charge sales tax on online courses, as instructed by state laws. When vouchers are used to purchase a course for an individual, the course will be subject to sales tax, as the individual is deemed to be the customer.
- Sales tax will be calculated based on the rate for the zip code in the individual's ONS account.
- This applies to any sale, which includes any vouchers that are redeemed after 8/8/2023 regardless of when the voucher was purchased.
- Vouchers can be purchased in any amount. If your institution wishes to also cover the cost of the sales tax, a separate voucher can be purchased for that purpose and can be requested by choosing "A bulk voucher for a set amount" in the order line 1 box within the following form: https://institutions.ons.org/hc/en-us/requests/new
