How to Apply for an Exemption Certificate

To apply for an exemption certificate, complete the Maryland SUTEC Application form. The application may also be obtained by calling Taxpayer Service at 410-260-7980, or toll-free 1-800-638-2937  from elsewhere in Maryland, Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. EDT

There is no provision for applying for the exemption certificate online. You must complete the hard copy version of the application to apply for the certificate.

Nonprofit organizations must include copies of their IRS 501 (c) (3) determination letter, articles of incorporation and their organization's bylaws with the completed application. Failure to do so will result in the application being returned.

Mail the completed application and required documents to:
