Seeking sales tax exemption
Organizations seeking a sales tax exemption must apply online via MyTax.DC.gov, attaching supporting documentation as needed. If approved, the Office of Tax and Revenue will issue an official certificate. Exemption certificates must be renewed prior to the expiration date listed on the certificate.
