BELLEVUE, Wash., April 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- drugstore.com, inc.

The Company has paid an aggregate of approximately $1.7 million based on two assessments for sales and use tax, interest, and penalties for January 1, 2000 through February 22, 2008, in full satisfaction of its obligations for sales and use taxes for those years. The Company had previously accrued $2.9 million for this liability. In conjunction with this resolution, the Company will withdraw its appeal of a trial court decision issued in February 2008 that rejected the Company's assertion that it was not obligated to collect and remit use taxes for sales it made to New Jersey residents.

"We are pleased that after almost seven years we were able to reach a resolution with the State of New Jersey that satisfies both parties and allows us to focus on growing our business," said Dawn Lepore, chief executive officer and chairman of the board of drugstore.com, inc. "The benefit of approximately $1.2 million from these events will be recorded in the first quarter of 2009."
