Frequently Asked Questions
Tax Exemption Policy
How do I receive tax exemption on my order?
PayPal will refund sales tax on purchases to eligible tax exempt organizations with a properly completed exemption certificate or other acceptable proof of exempt status in the state where the items will be shipped.
Once you have completed your purchase, please forward the confirmation email and proof of your organization's tax exempt status to email@example.com. Once your tax exempt status has been verified, PayPal will refund all applicable taxes to your organization’s PayPal account. After approval, future orders will not be charged sales tax when the order is settled (it may appear on order confirmations) as long as valid proof of exemption is on file for the state(s) where the items will be shipped.
You'll be notified via email once your tax exempt request has been approved. It may take up to 3-5 business days.
