Nintendo Switch US Tax Free Zip Code for Nintendo eShop

Written by

If you’re from a non-US country and want to purchase a game from Nintendo eShop, you probably asked for a US Zip Code before buying or entering the online shop. Once you checkout, you’ll notice that there is an additional tax fee on the top of the total price, an addition of 5% to 10% fee plus the original price. Like for example in Legend of Zelda instead of paying $59.99 only, you’ll be paying $65.98 in total, the tax fee is $5.99 tax.

To avoid this additional fee’s when checking out, you must enter a Tax-FREE US Zip Code. Some state in the United States doesn’t charge for additional tax for digital purchase, and since you’re living outside the US you should have no problem with its legality, so here are the following states and Zip Code that you can use:

  • 97330 – Corvallis, Oregon
  • 03222 – New Hampshire, Bristol
  • 97222 – Milwaukie, Oregon
  • 97116 – Forest Grove, Oregon
  • 97080 – Portland, Oregon

Note: This process is only valid for user who are outside of the US countries and uses a prepaid card to top up their Nintendo eShop account. US citizens are needed to use their original states to pay for tax obligations.
