STATE & LOCAL SALES TAXES
Taxes that appear in your online order confirmation are estimated. Because orders may be fulfilled from multiple locations across the U.S., the actual taxes charged to your credit card will be calculated based on the applicable state and local sales taxes when your order is shipped.
The terms contained herein are subject to change, as the taxation of online transactions is continually evolving. Nordstrom strives to comply with state and local tax laws as they exist currently, and continues to monitor and update its taxation policies as those laws change.

States Where Nordstrom Does Not Collect Sales Taxes
Nordstrom does not collect sales or use taxes in all states. For states imposing sales or use taxes, your purchase may be subject to use tax unless it is specifically exempt from taxation. Your purchase is not exempt merely because it is made over the Internet or by other remote means. Many states require purchasers to file a sales/use tax return at the end of the year reporting all of the taxable purchases that were not taxed and to pay tax on those purchases. Details of how to report these taxes may be found at the websites of your respective taxing authorities.
