NEW KANSAS TAX-EXEMPT ENTITY EXEMPTION CERTIFICATES
TO BE ISSUED
As part of the process to renew the exemption certificates the department has revised the certificate to assist you in identifying the old vs. new format. An example of the current and new certificate is on the second page of this notice. The new certificate will be available to tax exempt entities beginning on August 1, 2009. The renewal application is located on our web site, www.ksrevenue.org. Throughout August and September the department will be issuing notices to the entities on how to renew the certificate.
You can continue to honor the current exemption certificate as long as the expiration date has not passed. You must request a copy of the new certificate from your clients as they make purchases. The entities have been told to provide retailers with a copy of their new certificate. If your business provides exempt entities with your own exemption card as part of your exemption process, you must update your systems to ensure you are only allowing tax exempt entities who are issued an exemption by the department to purchase tax exempt. Please note the exemption number has not changed.
This change only affects the tax entity exemption certificate. Other exemption certificates used for agricultural purchases, purchases of resale, for manufacturing and processing, consumed in production, and purchases by the federal government are not affected and continue to be used in the same manner. As a reminder, if you question the validity of an exemption certificate, you can check on a tax entity exemption certificate through a verification process on our web site. Click on exemption certificates under ‘Your Business’ to access the verification application.
