Tax Exemptions

Child Care Educational Materials Tax Exemption

Certain educational materials purchased by a qualified Gold Seal child care facility are exempt from taxation. If your child care facility meets all 3 requirements listed within the application below and you have not submitted the appropriate tax exemption information, please complete and mail the attached form, Application for Sales and Use Tax Exemption for Gold Seal Quality Care Facilities, so that we may accurately reflect your information within our system. Tax exemption data will be updated and exchanged with DOR on a monthly basis, therefore, please allow 2 months to receive your Gold Seal tax exemption certificate by mail. Once received, present this card to retailers for tax exemption of qualified educational materials.

Please remember that your tax exemption card is only valid during your Gold Seal accreditation period.
