Sales to Exempt Nonprofit Organizations

Certain qualified nonprofit organizations are exempt from paying tax on the purchase of items which will be used in carrying out the business of the organization.

The state of Maryland issues exemption certificates to properly qualified organizations. You should record the eight-digit number from this certificate on your copy of the receipt or sales slip.

If you are presented with an exemption certificate, you may use our online service to verify its validity.
