Arizona Form 5000A, Arizona Resale Certificate is a document released by Arizona's Department of Revenue. The application is supposed to be completely filled out and signed by a purchaser, and provided to a seller in order to document the purchase of a physical piece of personal property for resale. Sellers use Form 5000A for single transactions or for periods of time as stated in the application itself. A vendor should take it from a buyer at the time of a sale.
The state of Arizona has a Transaction Privilege Tax (TPT), a tax on sellers for the privilege of doing business in Arizona. Presenting an AZ 5000A Form allows wholesalers to avoid paying TPT on some items. In other words, an Arizona Resale Certificate is used to claim TPT exemptions from a vendor when making purchases for resale so the document is applicable only for those vendors who have an Arizona TPT License or another state's sales tax License.
