About the Amazon Tax Exemption Program

The Amazon Tax Exemption Program (ATEP) allows Amazon Business customers to apply your tax exemption status to eligible purchases from Amazon.com and affiliates or other participating sellers.

About ATEP

Tax-exempt status is typically available for qualifying businesses, governments, nonprofit entities, and educational institutions.

Customers who make tax exempt purchases with a business account on behalf of the business are subject to the Amazon Tax Exemption Program (ATEP) Terms and Conditions.

Enroll in ATEP

To apply your tax-exempt status to eligible purchases, enroll your business account in ATEP. An administrator with an Amazon.com account already enrolled can migrate their ATEP settings in Business Settings.

The Amazon Tax Exemption Wizard guides you through enrolling. Your tax-exempt status usually activates within 15 min of enrolling. If you must upload your certificate, approval takes up to 24 hours. You can also use this tool to edit or update your status.
