RESTAURANT EQUIPPERS SALES TAX POLICY

 

As required by law, unless we have received a valid and properly completed SALES TAX EXEMPTION DOCUMENT from your business or organization, Restaurant Equippers, Inc. must collect and remit sales tax for all merchandise picked up by you or delivered to you within the states listed below.

 

Tax-Exempt Status for Businesses and Organizations

 

If your business or organization has tax-exempt status in any of the below states where you are to pick up or have merchandise delivered, for Restaurant Equippers to make your purchase non-taxable, you must provide us with a properly completed Sales Tax Exemption Document(s). To assist you, we have included the Sales Tax Exemption Documents from each state most commonly used to help document our customers' Tax Exemption Status at Restaurant Equippers.

 

  • In the list below, locate the appropriate state where you will pick up or have the merchandise delivered.
  • Choose the exemption document that represents your reason for exemption in that state.
  • Print the exemption document.
  • Complete the document. Make sure to attach any additional information that may be required.
  • Fax, text, or email the properly completed exemption document, along with any additional required information, toll-free to our National Order Office at FAX 1-877-235-1721 or email to websales@equippers.com.
  • Contact our National Order Office toll-free at 888-430-1655 to confirm your document was received.
  • Once the completed certificate has been received and validated, Restaurant Equippers will mark your account as tax-exempt for delivery within that state.

Restaurant Equippers, Inc. does not currently collect and remit sales tax on deliveries to states other than those listed at the above link. However, in some cases, an order may be shipped directly from the manufacturer to you in a state where the manufacturer has a taxable presence (nexus). In such cases, Restaurant Equippers, Inc. may be required to collect and pay the applicable tax to the manufacturer before shipment. We will alert you in these instances before collecting additional funds.

Should your exempt status be a result of being a non-profit exempt organization or an exempt federal, state, or local government organization, in addition to providing us with your initial exemption document in some cases, we will need additional documentation for each transaction. That documentation will verify that your payment is being made directly from the exempt organization's funds as required by that state's sales tax law (i.e., in some states, a copy of the payment document or the credit card showing the name of your exempt organization is required for each transaction). In such cases, payment by cash, personal check, or personal credit card cannot be accepted even if your organization later reimburses you.

Sales Tax Refunds
If you are a tax-exempt business or organization and have paid tax in error, please contact us at 888-430-1655 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 is completed. Otherwise, special procedures may be required to obtain a refund from the state.

Note: If you are an existing Restaurant Equippers customer and already have exempt status with us by visiting our stores or phoning in an order, our website will recognize your exempt status once you log into your account.

Sales Tax Refunds

If you are a tax-exempt business or organization and have paid tax in error, please contact us at 888-430-1655, ext. 118 or 147 to provide the required exemption information and obtain credit for the taxes charged. Such refunds can usually be made only within 30 days after the sale is completed. Otherwise, special procedures may be required to obtain a refund from the state.

Note: If you are an existing Restaurant Equippers customer and already have exempt status with us by visiting our stores or phoning in an order, our website will not recognize your exempt status the first time you place an online order. As a result, when placing your first 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 future website orders will reflect your exemption.
