Sales Tax Exemption
Good Start Packaging collects and remits sales tax for sales in certain states.
If you're purchasing products for use in these states, they may be exempt from sales tax. We can flag your Good Start Packaging account so that you won't be charged sales tax at checkout. You must be logged into your Good Start Packaging account when ordering for the exemption to apply.
Please attach your resale certificate using the form shown. Once received, we will adjust your account and confirm via email within one business day. Please wait for confirmation BEFORE placing your order. We are unable to apply your resale certificate retroactively to previous purchases.
Below are examples of the documents we need to be completed by state. If your state is not listed, we will not collect sales tax at checkout. Required forms for non-profits may vary. Please DO NOT send your business license, sales tax permit, W2, or W9.
