The Streamlined Sales Tax States will accept the electronic data and do not require a signature in order for the exemption to apply as long as your transaction is conducted electronically. However other states do require a signature and generally require the completion of a form claiming the exemption. You will need to check with the specific states to determine what they will accept as an electronic signature. If you need further assistance with this matter, please feel free to contact us directly.
