Tax Exemption For Mississippi Non-Profit Organizations



Is my Mississippi non-profit eligible for state sales tax exemption?

Not unless they are specifically exempt according to Mississippi law. Non profit organizations in Mississippi are required to pay sales and use tax.

Do I need to register with the Mississippi State Tax Commission?

Yes. This can be done online: http://www.dor.ms.gov/TAPRegistration.html

Can my MS non-profit become exempt from Mississippi corporate tax or federal taxes?

All entities doing business in Mississippi are required to file the minimum corporate income tax. However, you can apply for 501c status with the IRS by filing the proper form and included attachments. This process can take up to 9 months and beyond.
