Death and Taxes
The only two sure things in life.
As a California based company we're required to charge sales tax on all subscriptions that are shipped within the state of California. This won't affect the overwhelming majority of subscribers but if you get your Splendies shipped to California then that's the reason for the extra dollar. The base price of your subscription won't change at all but when Uncle Sam calls you've got to answer.
The change will be reflected in the July shipments and going forward.
