General Sales Tax Questions

We are legally required to collect sales tax in the states where Micron has a business presence. If your order is being shipped to one of these states, it will include sales tax. Orders shipped to any other state will not be charged sales tax. Your order will have sales tax on it unless one of the below categories applies to you. 

The order is shipped to a state where we do not have a taxable presence

Sales tax is typically based on the ship to address on the order. If you live in and have your order billed to a non-taxable state, but are having your parts shipped to a taxable state, tax will be added to your order.

The order is for resale

Your order is tax exempt if you are purchasing the parts to be resold by you, and you have provided Crucial with a completed resale or tax exemption certificate.

In order to make a tax exempt sale, Crucial is required to have a properly completed resale certificate for your state. This form must be submitted, reviewed, and entered prior to the shipment of your order to qualify for tax exempt status. Resale certificates for various states can be found here

Fax or email your completed form to Micron Consumer Products Group: Business/Government/Education (208)363-5560 or ecommerceorders@micron.com; VAR (208) 363-5633 or cruccust@micron.com.

The order is for a non-profit business entity or organization

Your order is tax-exempt if your business entity or organization is considered tax-exempt by your state, and you have provided Crucial with a completed exemption certificate or other documentation allowed by your state tax authorities.

Examples of typically exempt entities include churches, hospitals, and libraries. Not all states exempt these entities, so you should check with your state tax authorities to determine if you qualify for an exempt purchase.

The order is for a state/local government or an educational institution

Your order is tax-exempt if your government/education agency or institution is considered tax exempt by your state, and you have provided Crucial with a completed exemption certificate or other documentation allowed by your state tax authorities.

Examples of typically exempt government/education entities include state/county/city governments, K-12 schools, universities, and libraries. Not all states offer exemption to these entities, so you should check with your state tax authorities to determine if you qualify for an exempt purchase.

You are purchasing for official federal government usuage

The federal government is exempt from state sales taxes. There are exceptions to this rule which are determined by who actually pays for the item. There can also be special rules regarding contractors for the federal government. You should consult your tax advisor or state tax authorities if you have questions relating to federal government contractors.

If you are making a purchase using a federal government credit card, you need to be aware that only certain cards will allow Crucial to make a tax exempt sale. Only cards that are paid directly by the government will qualify. Travel and other cards will not qualify for the exemption.

Your company has been granted Direct Pay Authority by the state where the product is being shipped

Some states authorize companies to pay all sales tax directly to the state, rather than paying sales tax to each vendor. In these cases, you will have specific documentation that is used to support the exemption. 

Summary

There are no exceptions to the requirement to pay sales tax unless a purchaser fits one of the above categories. If there are questions about documentation, please
