Amazon Tax Exempt Program (ATEP)
All accounts must be set up for tax exemption using the Amazon Tax Exemption Program (ATEP). Please watch your orders carefully to ensure that you are not being taxed on appropriate items.
All items purchased sold and fulfilled by Amazon.com LLC will be granted sales tax exemption. Third party sellers selling through Amazon will not grant the sales tax exemption. You will not see an option to remove the tax for third party sellers.
If you have issues with sales tax on specific Amazon orders, email Amazon’s Tax Exemption Program directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure proper exemption.
Personal Amazon Accounts: The University’s sales tax exemption should not be associated with personal accounts. This is in violation of Michigan state sales tax laws. Procurement Services recommends setting up separate accounts for work and personal use.
GVSU Faculty and Staff using Amazon are required to sign up for the Amazon Tax Exempt Program.
