Uploading Sales Tax Exemption Certificate to Amazon.com

Amazon.com collects sales tax on all online purchases made in Texas. As a state agency, The University of Texas at Arlington is exempt from sales tax. In order for Amazon.com purchases to qualify for the exemption, each Procurement card (Procard) holder must perform a one-time upload of the Texas Sales Tax Exemption Certificate at least one week prior to the departmental purchase to allow time for processing. Note: If a Procard is used with multiple Amazon.com accounts for university purchases, the Texas Sales Tax Exemption Certificate must be uploaded for each Amazon.com account.

To upload a Texas Sales Tax Exemption Certificate, complete the steps below:

  1. Download and save Texas Sales and Use Tax Exemption Certification for Amazon.com (Form 2-5B).

  2. Go to https://www.amazon.com/gp/taxExemption/.

  3. Sign in using the Amazon account information (email address and password). The Amazon Tax Exemption Program page appears. Note: The Amazon.com account used for university Procard purchases cannot be identical to an account used for personal purchases. If separate accounts have not yet been created, the user must create an additional account before uploading the certificate.
