Nevada Sales And Use Tax Exemption
GUIDE TO EXEMPTION FROM NEVADA SALES TAX
How can I get an exemption from Nevada sales/use tax for my non profit?
Nevada has no corporate tax and nonprofits are exempt from the annual business license fee if they obtain 501(c) tax-exempt status with the IRS, but your nonprofit will still need to apply for sales tax exemption if your purpose is religious, charitable or educational.
Nevada sales tax differs by county from 6 to 8 percent.
File the completed Application for Sales/Use Tax Exemption for Religious/Charitable/Educational Organizations with a copy of your IRS determination letter to the Nevada Department of Taxation. Also include your bylaws, articles of incorporation, a financial statement and an outline of your charitable activities. The application comes with detailed instructions. There is no filing fee.
Will I need to renew my exemption?
The NV Department of Taxation will issue a letter of exemption if your application is approved. You will have to reapply every five years and the department will notify you 90 days before your NV sales tax exemption expires.
Submit your application to:
