As of February 1, 2016, the state of Colorado is charging tax on all Amazon purchases.  If you purchase anything through Amazon on your a-card, you will need to change your Amazon account to be tax exempt. You should still check your order prior to placing it as some of the smaller/more obscure vendors that Amazon does not “fulfill”  may not automatically recognize your tax exempt status.  Once you are set-up with Amazon as tax exempt, you can opt out of tax exempt status for personal purchases.  In order to set up your own account as tax exempt, you may do the following:


1.  Log into your account

2.  Scroll down to “Settings”

3.  Go to “Amazon Tax Exemption Program”

4.  Select Get Started

5.  Select Colorado

6.  Select "Educational Institution", then Continue

7.  Download CU's “State of Colorado” certificate of exemption.  You can find link to certificate here.

8. Accept Amazon's terms and conditions and click "upload"

Note:  all your Amazon purchases will now be tax exempt.  If you have a personal purchase through Amazon, you have the option to opt out of the tax exempt status for each purchase.
