Domestic Shipments

Free Shipping

When you spend $45 or more on print books, you’ll get free shipping for all books shipped within the United States. Your order will be delivered 5-12 business days after your order is placed. Ebooks do not require shipping, so they do not apply towards the $45 free shipping deal.

Sales Tax

To comply with various state and local sales tax laws, we are required to collect retail sales tax on purchases by non-Illinois residents, previously exempt from paying the tax.

Some states require tax to be charged on shipping.

If you are exempt from sales tax, please go to and fill out the form and submit a pdf of your tax-exempt certificate or documentation.

Please email or call 800-843-9487 (option 2 is customer service) if you have any questions.

Transactional Sales Tax

IVP does not collect Colorado, Missouri, Oklahoma, or Vermont sales and use tax. Purchase is not exempt from sales and use tax merely because it is made over the Internet or by other remote means. The states of CO, MO, OK, VT require purchasers to report all purchases that are taxable and for which no tax was collected by the retailer and pay tax on those purchases.

Colorado Customers

IVP will provide the purchaser an annual purchase summary of all purchases made during the previous calendar year in order to assist the purchaser in filing the tax return.

Visit the Colorado Department of Revenue, Taxation Division, for details of how and when to file for businesses or individuals.

IVP is required by law to provide the Colorado Department of Revenue with an annual report indicating the name of the purchaser, the total dollar amount of all the purchaser's Colorado purchases made throughout the calendar year, and the purchaser's billing, notice, and shipping addresses. The retailer will not provide any other details of the transaction to the Department.
