State Sales Tax Exemptions

By Harold Berndt, Director Financial Reporting and Taxation

Did you know that University of Missouri employees and students traveling on University related business are exempt from sales tax in 13 other states in addition to 7 states that do not charge sales tax?

The Controller’s Office website maintains a list of states that do not charge sales tax, as well as which states grant the University an exemption from paying sales tax and links to any forms necessary to prove the exemption.  Please note that in some states where the University is exempt from paying sales tax, hotel or rental car tax may be charged.  The University is generally not exempt from these taxes as they are not true sales taxes.

  2. Yes. The Department of Revenues General Counsel’s office says that a Missouri business can legally refuse our tax exemption if they don’t believe it is being presented in good faith, such as. suspecting that the item is being purchased for personal use. If a business should choose to not honor our tax exemption, our only recourse in that instance is to not give them our business.
