Required fields:

  1. Name of seller.
  2. Name of government agency purchasing.
  3. Date.
  4. Signature.

Notes:

  • If the customer does not supply the above exemption certificate, but only supplies the form 68, issued by the state, that makes up Reason for Exemption D., it will be accepted as a valid exemption certificate.
  • If the customer checks the fifth box in the reason section, they must also write in a valid reason for exemption, such as federal, state or local government. The name of the customer must support this claim. If a logical assumption can be made that it should be true and non-taxed, it will be marked as exempt.
  • Sales to any branches of government are better documented using the official government exemption form, but the Blanket Certificate of Resale can also be used. Buyers may also present a statement on their letterhead that they are part of the government. Government organizations do not have exemption numbers.
  • The Tennessee DOR Certificate of Registration is not a valid exemption certificate. It only shows that the buyer is registered as a reseller, but does not show they are claiming an exemption.
  • Exemption organizations are issued a letter from the DOR that must be copied with the bottom section completed to be considered a valid exemption certificate. Forms are RV-N0003101 and RV-1901.
  • Tennessee accepts the MTC form and SST form if the proper areas on those forms have been filled.
  • Tennessee exemption forms do not expire.
