How to use sales tax exemption certificates in Pennsylvania

A sales tax exemption certificate is a form you can fill out yourself certifying that you meet the qualifications outlined for making sales-tax-free purchases. You will need to present this certificate to the vendor from whom you are making the exempt purchase - it is up to the vendor to verify that you are indeed qualified to make a tax-exempt purchase.

The state of Pennsylvania provides certain forms to be used when you wish to purchase tax-exempt items such as prescription medicines.

When purchasing merchandise, it must be noted that there is only one main sort of exemption certificate which can be utilized. This is the "Pennsylvania Exemption Certificate", which is utilized for all tax exempt purchasing procedures.

To apply the certificate, the buyer must first present the seller with their written certificate, which legally documents the exemption. The certificate should include the date it was created, the signature of the buyer or an employee or agent who signed on behalf of the buyer, both the seller's and buyer's addresses and names, the legal basis of the exemption being utilized, the buyer's tax registration or business license number, and a description of the merchandise that the buyer wishes to purchase.

There is no specified expiration date for most of these certificates, although the ones applicable to charitable, educational, or religious institutions may need to be renewed every three years. It must be noted that the only sales that the any certificate covers are sales for resales, and must also include the buyer's Pennsylvania license number.
