How to Apply for State Sales Tax Exemption

Securing Sales Tax Exemption

If your church or ministry has not yet secured exemption from sales tax on purchases of goods and services, it could be costing you dearly. With sales tax rates as high as 10% in some states, you cannot afford to miss out on this exemption!

Don't Pay Sales Taxes Unnecessarily

Applying for sales tax exemption is an important step in establishing your church or ministry. Depending on which state you live in, it is like receiving an increase of up to 10% in your operating budget. All of the purchases or lease agreements that your church makes exclusively for its own purposes will qualify to receive this exemption.

One of the Wisest Decisions Your Church Can Make!

Let’s say a church goes to purchase a van for the price of $17,500.00. After calculating sales tax, the total price jumps to $18,550.00. However, if the church has an Exempt Use Certificate, it will not have to pay the sales taxes. It will save $1,050.00. That is a substantial savings!

Confusing Sales Tax Exemption with 501(c)(3) Status

Is there a difference between sales tax exemption and having 501(c)(3) status? Many are under the assumption that these two are one in the same, but they are not! Sales tax exemption requires a separate, formal application which is different for each state.
