The UW Tax Exempt number has changed to 008-1020421203-13. This change is effective immediately, however the old number is valid until sometime in early 2022 (a specific deactivation date is not known at this time). CALS is requesting replacement tax exempt wallet cards to distribute to Departments to distribute to employees. Please spread the word to all employees who travel or make purchases on behalf of the UW to phase out their current cards once the replacement cards are received and on hand.
The new Tax Exempt Certificate can be found here: https://www.wisconsin.edu/travel/download/tax_exempt_status/UW-Tax-Exempt-Certificate-WI-June-2021.pdf
Also, please note that any personal or business Amazon accounts, as well as tax exempt accounts set up with any other vendors, will need to be updated and possibly go through the process of tax exempt verification with the new number / certificate.
Please fill out the following survey to request Tax Exempt Wallet Cards to be sent to your Department or Unit once they are available to CALS Business Services: https://uwmadison.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3as477csBeYbRdA – The survey contains two quick questions regarding where to send the cards and the quantity needed.
Cards will also be kept on hand at CALS Business Services for pick up, as needed.
If you have any questions, please connect with your CALS Accountant.
