Tax Exemption Notice

In accordance with state statutes, section 7-9-54, sales of tangible personal property to The University of New Mexico are specifically exempted from the Gross Receipts Tax.

UNM Purchasing Staff has provided a certificate which is consistent with state statutes 7-9-5 and 7-9-43(B) and issued in place of a "Non-Taxable Transaction Certificate." This certificate may not be used for the purchase of services, for the lease of property, or for the purchase of construction materials to be used in construction projects.

If you are making a purchase using petty cash, a Chrome River Document, or the Purchasing Card with a new vendor that needs a certification of our tax exempt status, UNM staff may print a copy of the certification here, or direct the vendor to the Purchasing Department. If you are making a purchase using a Purchase Order, the Purchasing Department will automatically review the order and issue the certification as appropriate.
