Streamlined Sales Tax Agreement
Certificate of Exemption
Do not send this form to the Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board. Send
the completed form to your supplier and keep a copy for your records.
This is a multi-state form. Not all states allow all exemptions listed on this form. Purchasers are responsible for knowing if they qualify to
claim exemption from tax in the st
ate that would otherwise be due tax on this sale. The seller may be required to provide this exemption
certificate (or the data elements required on the form) to a state that would otherwise be due tax on this sale.
The purchaser will be held liable for any tax and interest, and possible civil and criminal penalties imposed by the member state, if
the purchaser is not eligible to claim this exemption. A seller may not accept a certificate of exemption for an entity-based exemption on a
sale made at a location operated by the seller within the designated state if the state does not allow such an entity-based exemption.
I declare that the information on this certificate is correct and complete to the best of my knowledge and belief.
