Why am I being charged Philadelphia, PA Sales Tax?Updated a month ago

Our company headquarters is located in Philadelphia, PA and Pennsylvania is an origin-based sales tax state. In origin-based states, sales tax is collected based on where the seller (in this case Dropps) is located. That sales rate includes a combination of state, county, city, and district tax rates.

Philadelphia, PA Origin Based Sales Tax Rates:
State: 6%
County: 2%
Municipal: 0%
Tax Policy: Tax Shipping & Handling

Please note, this tax is not added in addition to your local city taxes, and instead replaces those taxes with Philadelphia sales tax.
