Sales Tax Policy

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR CUSTOMERS LOCATED IN IOWA: Even if your order does not show sales tax, you may still owe sales tax on your purchase. IPI staff review all orders submitted on the IPI website and adjust the sales tax as follows:

  • FOR OUR TAXABLE CUSTOMERS:
    IPI (Iowa Prison Industries) collects sales tax on all orders delivered in Iowa.
  • FOR OUR TAX-EXEMPT CUSTOMERS:
    IPI (Iowa Prison Industries) does not collect sales tax if we have your exemption certificate on file.

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR CUSTOMERS LOCATED OUTSIDE OF IOWA: Even if we do not collect sales tax from you, you may owe sales tax on your purchase. Unless you live in Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, or Oregon, your state most likely requires purchasers to report and pay tax on all purchases that are not taxed at the time of sale. The tax may be reported and paid on your individual income tax return or by filing a consumer use tax return. For more information, please visit your state's department of revenue website.

If you have any questions, please call 800-332-7922 or email ipicustomerservice@iowa.gov.
