Question: Does Netflix charge sales tax for Hawaii residents?


Answer: Yes. While Netflix doesn't add a sale tax to their Hawaii-based subscriptions, they do add a general excise tax (GET).


Notes:

  • Netflix has been adding a GET to their Hawaii-based subscriptions since they opened their Honolulu shipping center back in 2004.

  • Netflix has been undercharging some of their Hawaii subscribers; for example, Honolulu subscribers are subject to a 4.5 percent GET, but Netflix has only been charging those subscribers a 4 percent GET.
