Important information


Tax exemption applications take 3-5 business days to process. Once your application is processed, future orders will no longer be taxed by Newegg.com. If your application lists a previous order that should have been tax exempt, any tax that we collected on that order will be refunded to the original payment method.


If any of your submitted information has changed, please log in to your existing exemption certificate account to make updates, renew existing certificates, or add new certificates if needed.


Orders shipping outside the United States (with the exception of APO/FPO/DPO and Puerto Rico) will always be charged the requisite tax and duty and cannot be exempt.
