Every utility company is required to charge sales tax unless the customer files a valid exemption certificate. The utility company typically does not promote, publicize, or assist in obtaining exemptions – it is just a pass through for the utility company. The exemption is not the responsibility of the utility company rather they are only a conduit…
What is the attitude of the Dept. of Revenue on sales tax exemptions for utilities?
In some states the exemption regulations are interpreted very narrowly. In some cases, the State can deny an exemption when in fact the manufacturer actually qualifies. On Your Mark knows what qualifies and always takes an aggressive position to defend the manufacturer’s position for exemption.
I personally want to thank you for your persistent and professional work. You told us we were entitled to and exemption even when the State denied the claims. We turned the issue over to you, and we didn’t have to spend time on it, and we wound up with great results.
