On November 1, 2013, Amazon began charging taxes for Massachusetts residents. In order to avoid being taxed for purchases made through Amazon for your department, you must download the University’s Tax Exempt certificates (ST-5) and (ST-2). The certificates need to be downloaded for every Amazon account and will need to be updated every three years. Use of the University's tax exempt forms for personal purchases is prohibited and subject to tax penalties. Once Amazon accepts the tax-exempt certificates, all purchases will be tax-free. Personal purchases should be made on a separate Amazon account.
