How do I claim tax exempt on the web site?

Crucial Employee

To claim (and save) tax exempt status on our online store, you will have to create a Business, Government, Educational, or VAR (Value Added Reseller) entity account here or use an existing account of those types. The billing and shipping address both need to be associated with the tax exempt entity’s name and address (we cannot ship tax exempt to a personal address unless a government credit card is being used).


When completing your order, while selecting shipping options, check the box for Tax Exemption. This will put a hold on your order after it is placed, preventing your order from invoicing until we receive a tax exemption form. You may find the appropriate tax form for your state on this page. Please complete your certificate with your information and email it to or fax it to 208-363-5560. We will then associate the form to your account. Please be sure to include your order number (located in the subject line of the order confirmation e-mail you receive) on the cover sheet of your fax.  This will allow us to remove the tax from your pending order, resume processing it, and put the form on file for future orders.
