NEW JERSEY Sales Tax Exemption Certificate - ST-5 Exempt Organization (Note: Not available on-line-Must be obtained from the State of New Jersey Division of Taxation).
Note: Even if you are an existing Restaurant Equippers customer and already have exempt status with us, our website will not recognize your exempt status the first time you place an online order. As a result, when first placing an order on our website, type "Tax Exempt" in the Comments box of your web order during Checkout. This will alert us to update your online account with your exemption status so that your current order and all future website orders will reflect your exemption.
If you are tax exempt and have paid tax in error, please contact us at (800) 235-3325 to provide the required exemption information and obtain credit for the taxes charged. Such refunds can normally be made only within 30 days after the sale was completed. Otherwise, special procedures may be required to obtain refund from the state.
If you are exempt as a result of being a federal, state or local government or a non-profit exempt organization, in addition to your initial exemption certificate, as required by law you will need for each transaction to provide documentation verifying that the payment is being made directly from your exempt organization's funds (i.e. a copy of the payment document or credit card showing the name of your exempt organization will be required for each transaction). Payment by cash, personal check or personal credit card cannot be accepted even if later reimbursed by your organization
