  • As of 10/1/09 WI is now an SST state and will accept the standard SST form. A certificate is not required by law and sales can be exempt if all the data elements are collected.
  • Sales to federal government, state government municipalities or schools can be documented by (a) exemption certificate, (b) purchase order identifying goods for government unit or (c) recording Certificate of Exempt status (CES) number on the invoice.
  • Form S-211 was issued to replace form s-016, s-017, s-205, s-206, s-207, s-207m and s-209. Older forms are still valid as proof of exempt sales if properly completed and taken in good faith.
