State Sales Tax Exemption

Charities are not automatically exempt from State Sales Taxes. Many states require charities to file paperwork to request state sales tax exemption.


501(c)(3) designated organizations are exempt from paying Federal Income Tax under various sections of the Internal Revenue Code. Although most states apply the 501(c)(3) exemption to State Income Tax as well, most states require charities to go through an application process to obtain a State Sales Tax Exemption. The application for State Sales Tax exemptions can be quite complex and regulations vary from state to state. In addition, State Sales Tax renewals may be required and can range between 1 to every 5 years.
