Tax Exemption Certification

As an agency of the State of Texas, the University is exempt from paying sales tax on the purchase of goods and services. Before a vendor can process an order without charging sales tax, they require a Tax Exemption Certification for their file.

If you are placing an order with a vendor who does not already have a Certification from the University, email the following information to accountspayable@sfasu.edu:

  1. Name of vendor
  2. Physical address of vendor
  3. Email address (preferred) or fax number
  4. Contact name (if any)
  5. Order number or other reference number (if any)


A reply to your email will be sent to confirm that the form has been sent to vendor.

For information about SFA tax exemptions in Texas and out of state, refer to Tax Exempt Status.
