Exemptions are just plain fun! The hunt to find new ones that offer savings to your company or customers is an exciting puzzle. States offer a wide array of sales tax exemptions (including some that you may be missing out on!) and the rules in every state are different, which only adds to the challenge.
Whether you claim an exemption as a purchaser or accept them as a seller, you’ll want to properly manage and understand exemptions available to you for sales tax purposes. You need to know when and how sales tax exemptions apply and understand what qualifies as acceptable exemption documentation so you can really play the game.
Who should attend?
This webinar is intended for for-profit companies that qualify for exemptions on their purchases based on usage and not-for-profit organizations making purchases and/or sales and for-profit entities making sales to exempt and not-for-profit organizations. It is intended for anyone who deals with exempt entities.
The course is also designed for general practitioners, with minimal to no experience. And for any level of practitioner that simply loves working with exemptions.

If you make purchases exempt from sales tax or are a seller whose sales include exempt sales, you need to understand the correct way to manage and administer exempt transactions. Exemptions are fun. Discovering them is like finding a treasure – they save money, they require critical thinking, and they give you an opportunity to shine!
But, like any great adventure, it can’t all be fun and games. Potential perils are always lurking…
While they may seem like a straightforward transactions, there are nuances that often take place during or after the transaction that can lead to costly mistakes or even disqualify your ability to claim the exemption entirely.
The exemption documentation provided, how the items are purchased, and who is purchasing the item are just a few of the things that can nullify an exemption. Failure to maintain the exemption documentation by either the seller or purchaser can lead to audit issues. And the way that a state’s tax code defines an exemption can make or break an exempt purchase.
So why bother with exemptions if there is risk involved? Because there are lots of great cost saving opportunities worth the risk. There are sales tax exemptions that you may know nothing about, exemptions that could be saving your company serious money.
This webinar will take you through the exemption landscape. You’ll learn about the different types of sales tax exemptions that are out there so you can take advantage of them.

And you will discover why sales tax practitioners find exemptions to be a favorite part of their job.
