Tax Exemption Certificate

The signed Ohio Blanket Sales Tax Exemption Certificate is no longer available online.

Rather, if you need a copy generated, please send:

  • The company name requesting documentation
  • What you plan on purchasing from the company
  • If you checked our contracted vendors before purchasing
  • If purchase is for resale or use

to the Tax department at tax@kent.edu.  

Please note:  Employees paying for goods or lodging with a personal check or personal credit card will not be exempt from the sales tax regardless of whether Kent State will reimburse the expenses.  Employees may only claim exemption if the good or service is directly paid by the university with the use of check request, purchase order or P-Card.  Find additional important information relating to sales tax on the Sales Tax Webpage
