What is an acceptable tax exemption form?

To process your tax exempt purchase, we need you to provide a valid form of exemption documentation for the state the order will be delivered to. Many states have their own certificate which you can find online. Additionally some states allow use of a "Multi-Jurisdiction Form" from the Multistate Tax Commission or a "Streamline Sales Tax Form" from Streamlined Sales Tax

Why Am I Being Charged State Sales Tax on My COMMERCE Order?

Many US states recently enacted laws that require online marketplaces like COMMERCE to collect sales tax on eligible purchases. Purchases that require us to charge sales tax differ between states. 

We’re required to charge sales tax if the state you’re in mandates it, often no matter where the seller is located.
