Boom Learning's physical offices are located in Washington State, in the City of Kirkland. Our sellers are wholesalers, not retailers, for sales made on Boom Learning. The point of sale for Boom Learning is upon the purchase of a membership or points package.

What Boom Provides

  • Free software as a service (the Editor and Player)
  • Paid software as a service sold as digital access codes (points)
  • Free and paid data processing services (memberships) for student performance management. 

Sales and use taxability of our services varies from state to state. Some states impose sales and use tax on all elements, others only on our software as service elements (points). We collect sales tax at the point of purchase where we are required to collect it and where we have nexus with the taxing state. Click here to make a tax-exempt purchase.

Use Taxes

A sale by Boom Learning to you is subject to use tax in your state unless

  • the item is excluded from sales tax or your state has no sales tax, or
  • we collected sales tax,
  • an exemption applies to your purchase.

There is no exemption based on the fact that a purchase is made over the internet. 

Use tax must be paid annually as required by the law in your state.
