Announcement: Amazon.com to Charge Sales Tax for Texas Purchases
Beginning July 1, 2012, Amazon.com will collect sales tax for Texas purchases. As a state agency, The University of Texas at Austin 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.
