Some state and local laws require Scribd to collect tax on the cost of our premium membership. Starting in October 2019, the price for a Scribd subscription will include VAT (value added tax). If you reside in a location where Scribd is required to collect tax, the tax amount will be included in your recurring billing amount.
Existing subscribers will see a slight increase in the amount billed each month, and new subscribers will see the calculated tax at checkout along with the initial purchase receipt that will be emailed to the email address on file for the Scribd account.
If you have any questions, please contact Scribd support.
