Your not shipping to NY are you? only state that should be paying sales tax is New York (and maybe California?), unless something has changed in the laws recently. I'd email Service to figure out.

Hi nmanic,

Welcome to Shapeways!
This comes from Jay, our Finance guy:

We are legally required to charge Sales Tax for orders shipped to Washington State, just like Amazon does, because we have a physical presence in the state, just like Amazon.

Let us know if you have any further questions!

Best,
Natalia
