Duties, Taxes, and Customs

A sales tax in the amount of 8.5% must be added to orders from customers residing in the State of Illinois, unless a tax exemption certificate is provided.

Orders shipped to addresses outside of the United States may require the recipient to pay tariffs and/or duties upon delivery. We do not calculate and do not charge duties and taxes on orders shipped outside of the United States and shall not be liable for any taxes imposed by government authorities outside the United States. Recipients will be responsible for all applicable duties, taxes, customs clearance charges, and penalties and fines, if any, that may be imposed by government authorities on orders delivered to countries outside of the United States.

Customs policies vary widely from country to country. You should consult your local customs office for more information about applicable duties and taxes that might be imposed by local law on incoming international shipments. When you order from SNIP, you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the merchandise.

Since cross-border shipments are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities, we may provide certain order, shipment and product information to our international couriers, and such information may be communicated by the couriers to customs authorities in order to facilitate customs clearance and comply with local laws.

Return, Exchange, and Refund Policy

Since all publications are informational products having a limited life, all sales are final, and the full or partial cost of an order cannot be refunded or credited toward future purchases. We do not exchange one title or type of publication for another.
