Tax Exempt - Paying vs. Not Paying Sales Tax

Need to know more about Tax Exempt status and paying vs. not paying Sales Tax? UAHuntsville is a tax exempt entity and by Alabama State regulations cannot pay sales tax on goods and services for the University or its research. Out-of-state taxes and travel items (hotels, gasoline, airfare, etc.) will continue to be reimbursed in full. Remember that Hotel "Occupancy" tax is NOT Sales Tax and should be included on any Purchase Order or paid by other means. If you make a purchase that includes Sales Tax, you are buying at your own risk as the Sales Tax most likely will not be reimbursed. Check your receipt for Sales Tax before you leave the store! See below for the link to the Tax Exempt form that you can print and take with you as needed.
