Exempt Organization’s – Does your Maryland sales tax exemption certificate expire 09/30/2012? September 4, 2012 The SALT Shaker On September 30, 2012 the state-issued exemption certificates for all Maryland exempt organizations will expire (the expiration date is on the top right corner of the certificate below the issue date). This means that exempt organizations must apply for and receive new certificates in order to continue purchasing goods and services without sales tax. The exempt organizations should send copies of their new certificates to the vendors that supply taxable goods and services so that tax-free purchases continue. The instructions for renewing your certificate are located on the Comptroller’s website at: http://business.marylandtaxes.com/taxinfo/salesanduse/exemption/renew.asp Please contact Andy Bareham if you have any questions about this process.
