Diane Yetter photoCurrently the states that are full or contingent members of the SST program accept the SST Exemption Certificate as a valid exemption certificate for a resale exemption. These states currently (see date) include Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Jersey, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming. Other states that accept alternative documentation are likely to also accept this but you would need to look at each state. If you are looking for a multi-state certificate, a number of states also accept the MTC Multi-Jurisdictional Certificate. You can download that multi-jurisdictional certificate using this link to the MTC.
