Frequently Asked Questions

What is sales tax?

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.

What is use tax?

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.

Do nonprofits need to register for sales and use tax?

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 unrelated to their tax-exempt purpose. Rules vary by jurisdiction and depend on the type of nonprofit and transaction. Organizations must comply with these rules.

I really appreciate the efficiency and the fact that I don’t have to think about it…I just forward everything to [my Registration Specialist], and she takes care of it.
 ~ Erin Riley Strong – FRESH EYES DIGITAL
Stetson University
One of the best vendor decisions we’ve ever made. I don’t know why we ever wrestled with all our state compliance filings in house. Labyrinth took all of the pain out of the process, and at a price point that made the decision obvious.
Amirah inc
Labyrinth made obtaining licenses for our out of state satellite office a breeze! Their customer service is top notch! They always respond to my requests within a day if not sooner. I sleep well at night knowing that Labyrinth is in our corner! They take the guess work out of state licensing! Don’t bother looking for another company! Let Labyrinth navigate the web of confusion for you!
~ Cheri Crider – AMIRAH INC.
National Alliance on Mental Illness
We’ve used Labyrinth for over seven years now and I have found their work and customer service to be great. Never had a single problem with all our state charity registrations over the years. We’ve been moving work being done by other companies to Labyrinth (like corporate registrations) to Labyrinth because we trust their work. Highly recommended!
~ David L ~ NAMI
Jewish Voice For Peace
Great experience working with Labyrinth for business and charitable registrations.
~ Elizabeth Ingenthron – A JEWISH VOICE FOR PEACE, INC.
Children Incorporated
Labyrinth is incredible! They have been managing our state registrations for about five years, and it has made our work so much easier. They save us time and effort, and they always come through for us. Highly recommended!
~ Ron Carter – CHILDREN, INC.

Amazingly proactive and throughly professional, and competent. Nice people, too!

State registrations for charity compliance? No, thank you! I DO NOT want to understand it. THANK YOU Labyrinth, you are worth every penny & all whom I’ve worked with have been great.
~ Diana Mansour – VISIONSYNERGY
Grey2K USA Worldwide

JBI International
I have been very happy with Labyrinth. They are always on top of everything and have helped me tremendously with all my state registration filings.
Africa New Life
We are a growing nonprofit organization with donors in all 50 States. Labyrinth has allowed us to comply with the myriad rules and regulations in every State. We do not have the time, nor the expertise, to handle this on our own. Labyrinth has made it so easy for us to get into compliance!
University of Vermont Foundation
The staff at Labyrinth are very good at their jobs. They stay on top of the filings and provide a complete turn key service. I recommend using Labyrinth.
B'Nai B'rith
My organization operates in nearly every state. Yet, like many non-profits, we are thinly staffed for admin and other back-office operations. We do not have the capacity to stay on top of every state’s charitable registration laws and/or filing requirements. Labyrinth does that for us and does it at a very reasonable rate. I would highly recommend Labyrinth for any non-profit that has multiple state charitable registration filings.
National Association of Productivity & Organizing Professionals
Labyrinth made the entire process of filing for state authorizations to solicit an easy and very smoothly delivered process. After we supplied the necessary information to them, very little time was required on our end other than filing the forms in our shared drive! Definitely recommend this company!
~ Deb Cullinan – NAPO, INC.
Zamir Choral Foundation
Very helpful in navigating charitable registrations for non-profits. They are also very knowledgeable about other aspects of non-profits and are always ready to help. A wonderful organization.
