Managing your GitHub billing settings

Your account's billing settings apply to every paid feature or product you add to the account. You can manage settings like your payment method, billing cycle, and billing email. You can also view billing information such as your subscription, billing date, payment history, and past receipts.


Starting August 19th, 2024, GitHub will begin collecting state-mandated sales tax, where and when applicable, from paying customers in the United States to align with industry standard regulatory practices. All United States customers are required to update payment information (specifically your address) to ensure the correct sales tax amount is assessed. If you are a paying customer, there will be a tax line on your receipt that provides a breakdown of the applicable taxes for the GitHub products and services you have purchased.

You will need to ensure that all required address fields are filled out in your billing information to calculate the correct sales tax. For more information about updating your billing information, see "Adding or editing a payment method."

If you're exempt from sales tax, you can upload a certificate to your account. See "Adding a sales tax certificate."
