Sales Tax Exemption Information

Why are we asking for this form?

Due to recent changes in U.S. interstate commerce sales & use tax law, we are required by most states to obtain proof of sales tax exemption from our customers. In summary, South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc. (2018), was a United States Supreme Court case in which the court held by a 5–4 majority that states may charge tax on purchases made from out-of-state sellers, even if the seller does not have a physical presence in the taxing state. To learn more about this case and its ramifications to interstate commerce, here is a thorough explanation.

How do we comply?

The majority of states have a state-specific form to be completed by those who are exempt from sales/use taxes. We require this completed form for our records. You are likely already familiar with your state's form, if you make business purchases for which you are not taxed (this varies by state, but many business expenses -- especially ingredients used in the process of making a final product that will be sold -- are not taxed). Please note that W-9 forms are not accepted for this requirement. For your convenience, we have listed links to each states' form(s) (if applicable) in the below chart. We've been diligent to ensure that this list is accurate to the best of our knowledge, but if you have any questions or notice a form has changed recently, please let us know.

Please note that some states' forms do expire. We will contact you for an updated form upon expiration.

If you do not have a state-specific form, the multijusrisdiction (general) form is acceptable and is available here.
