Tax Exemptions

If you are making tax-exempt purchases, you can submit a valid exemption certificate to your LiveAuctioneers profile.

LiveAuctioneers makes it easy for resellers to make purchases for their retail businesses. Easily upload your resale certificate or sales tax permit onto a secured server. Once verified, you can skip the hassle of providing tax exemption documents to auction houses on an auction-by-auction basis.

What type of tax exemption documentation is acceptable?

In order to be tax-exempt, you must provide a valid certificate for the state where the item will be shipped. 

Many states have their own certificates that are available online. Certain states permit the use of multi-jurisdiction tax exemption forms like a Streamlined Sales Tax Certificate of Exemption form from the Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board or a Uniform Sales & Use Tax Exemption/Resale Certificate from the Multistate Tax Commission.

How do I upload my resale certificate?

To qualify for tax exemption, you will need to upload your resale certificate(s) to your account profile.

  1. Log in to your account at
  2. From Account Settings, click on 'Tax Exemption'
  3. Under 'Add New Certificate', select your state and upload your resale certificate or sales tax permit details

Once approved, your uploaded certificate will be marked as 'Approved' under the 'Tax Exemption' tab, and your tax exemption status will be applied to all applicable invoices issued through LiveAuctioneers. Please note that providing documentation does not guarantee your tax exemption status on LiveAuctioneers. Our team may request additional information from you in order to complete the verification process.
