How to File for a State Tax Exemption


Identify the state-level tax authority. In many states, the Department of Finance and Administration and/or the Department of Revenue will serve as the governing tax authorities. In some states, taxpayer services divisions function in this capacity.


Locate state exemptions that apply to you. Tax exemptions differ by state. For most states, however, entities that qualify for federal tax exemptions also qualify for state tax exemptions. Peruse the entire list of exemptions for your state to ensure that you do not forgo a tax break for which you are eligible.


File for state tax exemptions. Follow the application instructions for your state. Maintain records of all exemption documents, as merchants may require them for claiming sales tax exemptions. You may also need these records to prepare your state tax return, if applicable.
