University Tax Exemption Information:

 The University of Wyoming is exempt from federal income tax under Sections 115 and 170 of the Internal Revenue Code.  As a political subdivision or agency of the State of Wyoming, the District Internal Revenue Office has taken the position that the University is not required to establish a Section 501 (c)(3) status.

The University is also exempt from Wyoming Sales Tax on items purchased directly by the University for authorized activities and functions as an exempt organization.  An additional exemption from Wyoming Sales Tax is granted to the University for purchases made for resale.

Organizations making exempt purchases do not have a tax exempt number assigned by the State.  Please note that the number printed on your P-Card is not a tax exempt number.

To verify tax exempt status to a new vendor, you will to provide them with a copy of the University's Certificate of Exemption.  The certificate can be printed from the purchasing office channel on WyoWeb, or you can request a copy by calling 766-2821

 This certificate is valid in Wyoming for the purchase of tangible personal property or services upon which Wyoming sales or use tax has been imposed.  The certificate is also valid for purchases made for wholesale, resale, ingredients or components of a new product to be resold, leased or rented in the normal course of University business.  This certificate is valid until canceled in writing by the University or revoked by the state.   Before providing the form to the vendor, be sure to fill in the vendor’s name and address at the bottom of section 3 and fill in the current date in section 6.
