Tax Policy

Tax Policy

DOWNLITE operates several plants and sales offices around the country. Because of these locations, we are required to charge sales tax unless you have the ship-to state's correct sales tax exemption certificate on file.

These are the states we operate in:

  • California
  • Connecticut
  • Georgia
  • Indiana
  • New York
  • North Carolina
  • Ohio
  • Texas
  • Washington

In order to NOT be charged sales tax, we must have the proper paperwork on file by each ship-to state. Please note, some states allow the usage of a multi-state certificate - others do not.

The following PDF links are required to be filled out and emailed back to us.  Please note that if you plan to drop-ship, it makes the most sense to fill out the multi-state form which covers all of our sales tax nexus states except IN & NY, which require their own forms. We do not currently have a form for WA, so if you only ship to WA, please send us your resellers permit or the multi-state form.

Blank Tax Forms

Once filled out, please be sure to send to whol[email protected].

Unless you are only shipping to the state you are located in, you are required to have multi-state documentation.  As a result, we will have to charge you sales tax unless you provide proper documentation. 

If you have a specific question on sales tax or getting the right paperwork - you can email our accounting group at:
