Does charge sales tax?

We collect sales tax in locations where we have a legal obligation to do so. Here are some breakdowns of how these taxes are calculated, charged, and shown:

  • Actual taxes charged are calculated based on state and local taxes of the location where your order is being shipped
  • The taxes that appear in your order at Checkout are estimated and may differ from taxes you are ultimately charged
  • If your state is exempt from sales tax, your shipping confirmation will reflect your new total
  • You are charged only when your order ships
  • In some states, delivery charges and gift wrap are also subject to tax
  • If your order is broken up into multiple shipments, the total sales tax for the order will be split across the various shipments
  • If you place an in-store order, the sales tax will be based on the location of the store that's placing the order

Note : Some Macy's store locations are required by local laws to charge a nominal bag fee for merchandise bags provided at the customer’s request for in-store or pickup purchases . If you don’t want to pay this fee, you’re welcome to bring your own bag/tote to the store.
