Frequently Asked Questions

Sales tax is a tax on the consumption of goods or services, most often levied on the final purchaser at the time of sale. Sales tax is not limited to retail sales. Services, leases, rentals, online sales, and other transactions may all be subject to sales tax. Sales tax can be levied simultaneously by state, county, and municipal agencies, so the final sales tax charged is the sum of these rates.

Use tax goes hand-in-hand with sales tax. Use tax is a consumption tax imposed on the purchaser for out-of-state goods used, consumed, or stored in the state. Use taxes are self-assessed by the purchaser. Typically applications for sales tax ids and use tax ids are consolidated into one form.

Nonprofits are not automatically exempt from sales and use tax. They may need to collect and remit sales tax on items they sell and pay sales and use tax, particularly on purchases of things not related to their tax-exempt purpose. Rules vary by jurisdiction and depend on the type of nonprofit and transaction. Organizations must comply with these rules.

Yes, potentially. Many states offer exemptions from sales and use tax for nonprofits as well as for-profit organizations operating in industries that enjoy specially-designated exemptions. In either case, sales and use tax exemptions generally involve complex filings and proof of exemption to be shown at point of sale.
