CONSTRUCTION CONTRACT EXEMPTION CERTIFICATE

AND STATEMENT OF DELIVERY IN INDIAN COUNTRY
TAX AND FEE ADMINISTRATION
NOTE TO SELLER AND PURCHASER
Sales tax generally does not apply to the sale of fixtures to non-Native American contractors who furnish and install the fixtures in Indian
country.
Generally, construction contractors are consumers of materials that are furnished and installed in the performance of a construction contract. As
a consumer, tax generally applies to sales of materials to contractors who are not Native Americans. This is true even when the materials are
delivered in Indian country and permanently attached to real estate in Indian country.
Under certain specific circumstances, a construction contractor performing a construction contract may qualify as a retailer of materials by
meeting each of the following requirements:
• The contractor must be in the business of selling materials or other tangible personal property;
• The contractor must possess a valid seller’s permit;
• The construction contract must explicitly provide for the transfer of title to the materials prior to the time the materials are installed, and
must separately state the sales price of the materials, exclusive of the charges for installation; and
• The construction contractor must provide a valid and timely resale certificate to its vendor.
When the construction contractor qualifies as a retailer of materials, the retail sale of the materials by the contractor may qualify as exempt from
tax as a sale to a Native American purchaser in Indian country provided each of the following requirements are met:
• The construction contract must separately state the price of materials, exclusive of the charge for installation;
• The contract must specifically provide that ownership of the materials (title) will transfer to the Native American customer in Indian country
prior to use or installation of the materials;
• The materials must, in fact, be delivered to the Native American purchaser in Indian country; and
• The construction contractor must obtain an exemption certificate from the Native American purchaser.
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 labeled 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 construction
contractor with sufficient documentation that the property was sold to a Native American residing in Indian country. The construction contractor
must also have a construction contract separately stating the sales price of the materials in addition to documentation showing transfer of
ownership and delivery of the property to the Native American purchaser in Indian country. 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.
EXEMPTION CERTIFICATE
(to be completed by purchaser)
When accepted in good faith, this exemption certificate may be used for the purchase of fixtures and materials (but, as to materials, only if the
construction contractor meets the requirements outlined above allowing the construction contractor to act as a retailer of materials) that will be
furnished and installed in the performance of a construction contract. Please provide a complete description of the property purchased. If you
intend to use this exemption 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. Please note that the use of a blanket exemption certificate for
multiple transactions will require proof of delivery of the property in Indian country for each transaction.
I hereby certify that the property described below is being purchased for use in Indian country and I am:
A Native American residing in Indian country; or
A Native American organization in Indian country.
