Misuse of this certificate

Misuse of this exemption certificate may subject you to serious civil and criminal sanctions in addition to the payment of any tax and interest due. These include:

a penalty equal to 100% of the tax due;

a $50 penalty for each fraudulent exemption certificate issued;

criminal felony prosecution, punishable by a substantial fine and a possible jail sentence; and

revocation of your Certificate of Authority, if you are required to be registered as a vendor. See TSB-M-09(17)S,

Amendments that Encourage Compliance with the Tax Law and Enhance the Tax Department’s Enforcement Ability, for more information.

To the seller

When making purchases that qualify for exemption from sales and use tax, the contractor must provide you with this exemption certificate with all entries completed to establish the right to the exemption.

As a New York State registered vendor, you may accept an exemption certificate in lieu of collecting tax and be protected from liability for the tax if the certificate is valid. The certificate will be considered valid if it is:

accepted in good faith;

in your possession within 90 days of the transaction; and

properly completed (all required entries were made).

An exemption certificate is accepted in good faith when you have no knowledge that the exemption certificate is false or is fraudulently given, and you exercise reasonable ordinary due care. If you do not receive a properly completed certificate within 90 days after the delivery of the property or service, you will share with the purchaser the burden of proving the sale was exempt.

Failure to collect sales or use tax, as a result of accepting an improperly completed exemption certificate or receiving the certificate more than 90 days after the sale, will make you personally liable for the tax plus any penalty and interest charges due.

You must maintain a method of associating an invoice (or other source document) for an exempt sale with the exemption certificate you have on file from the purchaser. You must also keep this certificate at least three years after the due date of your sales tax return to which it relates, or the date the return was filed, if later.
