Merchants: you are responsible for making sure that you only allow tax exemptions to active GATE cardholders for purchases that are eligible under the law. Follow these guidelines:
Always check card status before each purchase, to make certain the card is not suspended or revoked. You can see the card status and authorized users at out GATE Card status check page.
Always check IDs to make sure the person making the purchase is the person on the GATE Card or an authorized card user (see the GATE Card status check page).
If you have any doubts whether a purchase is exempt, do not just take the customer's word. Contact the GATE Program.
Always keep copies of receipts and purchases from your customers
Be aware of GATE Rules and Regulations before giving any tax exemptions. If you have questions, contact the GATE Program.
