How to submit an exemption

If your business or organization is exempt by statute (government, nonprofit, military, etc.) or you plan to make purchases for resale, you can submit your state-issued documentation or resale certificates to taxcert@consolidatedlabel.com. Please make sure to include your company name and customer number. You will also need to answer the questions on the form, sign, and date. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at the email listed above.

For example: Your company is located in FL, but you want your orders to be shipped into PA & NY. You will then need to provide us a PA & NY resale certificate with your tax ID number or FEIN.

What is a resale certificate and who can use one?

Resale certificates are used by purchasers when acquiring property for resale in its present form or as components of other property. A business which is registered for sales and uses tax can use a resale certificate only when the merchandise being purchased is to be resold by the business.

A business cannot use a resale certificate to purchase merchandise that they will use and consume in the conduct of business.

How to claim exemption using a freight forwarder in FL?

In general, if a sale is made to a company for export outside of the United States, it is not subject to sales tax. However, in order for this exemption to apply, delivery must not be made to the purchaser within the United States. The seller must deliver the property either directly outside the United States or to a qualified export agent. Copies of export documentation should be obtained from the export agent to substantiate the exemption and delivery outside the United States. (Sales Tax Institute)

Examples of records to document sales for export to points outside of FL are:

  • United States Postal Service parcel post receipts with supporting documentation identifying the property and the destination;
  • Common carriers’ receipts, bills of lading, or similar documentation that evidences the delivery destination;
  • Export declaration;
  • Receipts from a licensed customs broker; or
  • Proof of export signed by a customs officer

Who is a nonresident dealer? Any person who does not hold a valid FL sales tax certificate of registration and who is authorized in another state or country to make sales of tangible personal property in that state or country.
