3 Steps to Managing your Exemption Certificates

An exemption or resale certificate is a form or document issued by a business to ensure sales tax is not applied to their invoice because they are an exempt organization, intend to use the purchase for an exempt purpose such as resale or manufacturing, or for other less common reasons. Sales tax is not applied to these purchases because the applicable sales tax will be applied on the final sale of the exchanged tangible property. This practice ensures states do not collect sales tax twice on the sale of the same piece of property.

The process can be confusing as it varies within each state, and the required information to make the certificates valid will differ. Each state will dictate specific rules within its respective jurisdiction regarding the use of these certificates. There are three steps to managing your exemption certificates: determine the applicable state, choose the correct form, and provide all required information.
