NYS AGENCIES:

As per the NYS Dept. of Taxation and Finance, you must provide a completed “NYS TAX EXEMPT ORGANIZATION CERTIFICATE” along with your PO, If you submit your PO without the requisite form, we must charge you sales tax. Once we have your certificate on file, all your future purchases will be covered. We are extremely sorry for this inconvenient red tape, but without it, we are required to charge you 8.625% Sales Tax on your purchases.

FOR AGENCIES OUTSIDE NYS:

the following universal state “SALES TAX EXEMPT ORGANIZATION CERTIFICATE” is provided. If you can provide your state’s approved form in place of this universal form, please do so. We have the duty to collect, report and remit sales tax on sales made outside the domicile state of the vender (at the tax rate of the state to which items are delivered), unless the entity is an EXEMPT organization. This will be a paperwork nightmare!

Federal Forms Required for Restricted Weapons

For weapons and/or ammunition (including LESS-LETHAL), we will need in addition to the Sales Tax Exempt Organization Certificate as listed above, a completed federal Excise Tax Exempt Certificate #5300.28A and “Federal Tax Exempt Certificate #5300.28B”, your formal Purchase Order as well as a “Statement of Intended Use”

To all U.S. law enforcement agency Customers:

It is imperative that you supply us with your correct IRS EIN. We cannot complete any orders unless we have that number. We have recently been given EIN’s by purchasers, that are incorrect, either having too many numbers, incorrect prefix numbers, extra letters and numbers after the EIN, etc. Some have submitted state or federal sales tax exemption numbers, used when purchasing products or services, not their EIN. The EIN is the IRS “Employer Identification Number”. It is the 9 digit account number issued by the IRS to every U.S. employer, government and civilian alike, for payroll source deduction purposes (income tax and other deductions from employees, and remittance back to the Internal Revenue Service of these deductions). The payroll department or accounting/ finance branch of every government employer has this number and uses it weekly, bi-weekly or monthly, for remittances of Withholding Taxes. It is up to the customer, (such as the contracting officer), to verify it through one of these offices in their agency or company. However, please verify with them to be sure they are not mistaking providing the number issued by your state’s Department of Finance /Taxation as your state Tax Exempt Organization ID number. The format of this number is a 2-digit prefix, followed by a dash, followed by 7 additional digits.

It is all numbers, no letters.
For example: 53-1234567

An Employer Identification Number (EIN) is also known as a Federal Tax Identification Number, and is used to identify a business or governmental entity. If we are required to pay any IRS / CBP penalties through our provision of an incorrect or non-existent EIN — and they can be quite substantial–we will consider passing them back to you for reimbursement to us. Please take care that the correct number is obtained from your agency’s Comptroller/Finance Director. We must include the correct EIN on courier waybills, commercial invoices and external shipping labels of every package we ship.

Federal Express and United Parcel Service now require that consignees of “restricted items” shipments must be identified on all shipping documentation with your agency’s EIN.
