Sales Tax Exemptions


Is anyone exempt from sales tax in a restaurant?

The Sales Tax Division of Maine Revenue Services advises that persons claiming tax exempt status for meals or banquet service must:

·        Present a company check or credit card, (or make prior arrangements for billing) accompanied by an authorizing letter that includes the company tax ID number.

·        Government or municipal agencies must use a government check or credit card but need not present the accompanying letter or ID number.
