TAX AND FEE ADMINISTRATION
NOTE TO SELLER AND PURCHASER
Sales tax does not apply when a retailer transfers ownership of merchandise (tangible personal property), including a vehicle, vessel, or aircraft
to a Native American purchaser in Indian country, provided the Native American lives in Indian country. The Native American purchaser is not
required to live on the specific reservation where ownership transfers.
Retailers located outside Indian country may sell to Native American purchasers who request delivery in Indian country. For a sale to qualify as
a transfer of title (ownership) in Indian country, both of the following conditions must be met:
• The contract of sale or other sales agreement cannot transfer ownership of the item to the purchaser before it is delivered in Indian
country; and
• The purchaser or purchaser’s agent cannot take possession of the item before delivery in Indian country.
In addition, the retailer generally must deliver the product by:
• Using the retailer’s vehicle or other facilities of the retailer; or
• By mail, common carrier (UPS, FedEx, etc.), or contract carrier (a shipping, trucking, or transport company) when both of the following
requirements are met:
o The contract of sale or sales invoice must include a statement specifically requiring delivery in Indian country (for example, FOB name
of Native American reservation); and
o The goods are in fact delivered to the purchaser in Indian country.
When delivery does not take place as described above, ownership of the item being sold or purchased generally transfers to the purchaser
outside Indian country. Note: This is a general description of transfers of ownership in Indian country. Specific rules may apply to certain types
of sales and leases.
This may be used to document that the sale was to a Native American purchaser residing in Indian country and/or to document that delivery
occurred in Indian country. The section Exemption Certificate may be used to document that the property was sold to a Native American
purchaser residing in Indian country. Completion of this section in full by a Native American purchaser will provide the retailer with sufficient
documentation that the property was sold to a Native American residing in Indian country. Additional documentation showing transfer of
ownership and delivery of the property to the Native American purchaser in Indian country must also be obtained. If the property is delivered
by facilities of the retailer, proper completion of the Statement of Delivery and Notary Statement may serve as documentation that transfer
of ownership and delivery of the property to a Native American purchaser occurred in Indian country. If the property is delivered via common
carrier or contract carrier, completion of the Statement of Delivery and Notary Statement is not required. Instead, the retailer should retain a bill
of lading or other documents showing delivery in Indian country along with a contract of sale or other sales agreement specifically showing title
passing to the Native American purchaser in Indian country.
For California sales and use tax purposes, a “Native American” is a person who is both of the following:
• An individual of Native American descent; and
• Eligible to receive services as a Native American from the United States Department of the Interior (Regulation 1616, subd. [d][2]).
EXEMPTION CERTIFICATE
(to be completed by purchaser)

property. Please provide a complete description of the property purchased. If the property is a vehicle, vessel, or aircraft, please provide the

intend to use this certificate as a blanket exemption certificate to cover multiple transactions, please indicate this by including “all tangible
personal property” in the Description of Property Purchased field below. The use of a blanket exemption certificate for multiple transactions will
require proof of delivery of the property in Indian country for each transaction.
