TIP # 06A01-11
DATE ISSUED: July 1, 2006


The 2006 Legislature provided a sales tax exemption for certain advertising materials. These materials must:

  • Consist exclusively of advertisements, such as individual coupons or other individual cards, sheets, or pages of printed advertising; and
  • Be distributed free of charge by mail in an envelope for 10 or more persons on a monthly, bimonthly, or other regular base.

Charges for the printing of such advertising materials are exempt. Materials that that will be incorporated into and become a part of such printed advertising materials, such as paper and ink, may be purchased tax-exempt. Any person who purchases such advertising materials, or purchases materials that will be incorporated into such advertising materials, may extend an exemption certificate to the printer or to the selling dealer in lieu of paying tax. A suggested exemption certificate is attached.
