Maintaining current, valid exemption certificates is critical in managing your overall sales tax risk. Under audit, an otherwise exempt sale will be deemed taxable without a current, valid exemption certificate. Results from a sample of invoices can be extrapolated across the audit period and a few missing certificates can result in large assessments including penalties and interest. Implementing a process to gather, validate and manage exemption certificates is necessary for many businesses.
