Where do I get the exemption number for each state for my exemption certificates?
In general, the exemption number is your registration or account number used in the
filing of the tax/fee for which you are seeking exemption. For example, if you are seeking a
sales tax exemption in North Carolina, you will use your North Carolina sales tax account
number. If you are seeking a sales tax exemption in Rhode Island, you will enter your FEIN
(the state of Rhode Island does not issue sales tax account numbers). You can contact The
Department of Revenue for the jurisdiction in question for additional information.
