During the helter-skelter of the holidays, it’s sometimes difficult to remember the rules regarding sale tax exemptions. Generally, if the organization buys and sells personal property but does not make a financial profit, it would be classified as a nonprofit corporation.
• To receive an Indiana sales tax exemption, the organization must file a Nonprofit Application for Sales Tax Exemption (Form NP-20A) and annually file a Nonprofit Organization’s Annual Report (Form NP-20) with the Indiana Department of Revenue.
If a qualified non-profit organization sells items for 30 days or less during a calendar year (it doesn’t matter if days are consecutive or not), sales will be exempt from Indiana’s seven percent sales tax.
