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. 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). For your convenience, we have listed links to some states' forms in the below chart. In order to not charge sales tax, we require this completed form for our records.

If you do not have a state-specific form, the Wisconsin form (which can be completed here) is adequate for our records at this time. Alternatively, a multijusrisdiction (general) form is also acceptable and is available here.
