Tax Exempt StatusMerchants are usually required by tax authorities to include the applicable sales and use tax at the time of purchase. The amount of tax is dependent on a variety of factors including the state, county and city where the goods are purchased. Concordia is tax exempt for purchases meeting the guidelines below; the tax exempt number is printed on your Purchase Card. The sales tax exempt number may not be used for any other purpose than purchases for Concordia. It is your responsibility as a cardholder to remind the cashier at the time of your purchase that Concordia College is tax exempt.
Tax Exemption Guidelines
