Why was I charged tax?


In certain jurisdictions, Shudder is required to charge tax on our services in order to comply with your state and local laws. This is based on your zip or postal code or, if you haven’t provided us your zip or postal code, it will be based on information that we have about your location.  When applicable, these taxes are collected by Shudder and are then remitted to the jurisdiction that is assessing the tax.

How is the tax amount determined?


Tax rates can vary by county, city, or state, and are based on the rates applicable at the time of your monthly charge. These amounts can change over time with local tax requirements.


Does the monthly and Annual memberships to Shudder charge include sales tax?


The Shudder advertised price does not include sales tax. If sales tax applies, it is stated separately on your card issuer’s statement.
