5. Simplifying Tax Exemption

Time is Money. We'll Help You Save Both.

With our one-step tax exempt registration, tax exempt customers, including buyers for state and local governments or state-defined exempt organizations, retailers, resellers and manufacturers no longer have to complete the in-store paperwork with every exempt transaction.

You can now register here and, once approved, use a number that you select to document your exempt purchases. The process only takes a few minutes, and a temporary exemption will be issued when you successfully complete the registration. Once you're approved, shop in our stores or online and simply provide your tax ID at checkout to receive tax exemption on your eligible purchases.

Once your application is reviewed and approved, your registration will become permanent up to the renewal date as defined by your state. For most states, only one form must be completed to cover all of your business (some exceptions apply).

You can elect to receive email reminders to renew your registration, and making changes as your business or organization changes is easy.

• Take advantage of your status when you shop in the store or online.  
• All federal government purchases are automatically tax exempt.
