How do I qualify for Sales Tax Exempt purchases for personal orders?
To qualify we have to have a tax-exempt certificate on file if either your billing or shipping address is in Colorado. We do not collect sales tax for Wyoming orders.
I am a teacher that made a personal purchase. When will I get my K-12 gift certificate?
Gift Certificates are sent out six times a year (Jan/Mar/May/Jul/Sep/Nov) for orders that shipped in the prior two months. For example, if your order shipped in December or January, we will send you a certificate in early March; Feb/Mar shipped orders are sent in early May, and so on. Certificates expire 12 months after they are issued, and can be combined with other K-12 gift certificates.
I made a personal purchase. Will you share my purchase details or personal information with the school district?

Or contact your schools PTA/PTO.
