Payment methods
The ACS Online Store currently accepts payment for orders using Visa, MasterCard, or American Express. You may also submit your payment information on-line or by phone, fax, or mail. We cannot accept payment information via email.  All transfer of your personal information, including credit card handling, is done through a secure server using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.

Sales Tax
ACS is obligated to collect sales tax from purchasers in certain states.  If you are a tax exempt organization, please contact Customer Service using the contact information above to place your order over the phone. You may also fax your order in to us. If we do not already have a tax exempt certificate for your organization on file, you will be requested to provide one before we can complete your order.  NOTE: Orders placed under an individuals name will be charged tax if you are located in one of the taxable states as individuals cannot receive the tax exemption benefit.
