Exempt organizations and governmental entities
Sales to certain individuals and organizations are generally not subject to sales tax. Exempt purchasers include the United States of America, the State of New York, the United Nations, Industrial Development Agencies and Authorities (IDAs), and exempt organizations such as religious, charitable and educational organizations that have qualified for exempt status under the Tax Law. Each exempt purchaser must exercise its right to exemption by submitting the proper exemption document.
