Setting up your account for tax exempt purchasing ONLINE is an easy 3-step process.
FIRST – Work with your MATHESON Sales Contact or with MATHESON Customer Service to obtain a credit application and to set up a Customer Account with MATHESON (which is different, and separate, from an Online User Account). See How to Register.
If you already have such an account, you do not need to set up another one.
SECOND – Work with your MATHESON Contact to submit your Tax Exemption Credentials. Once set up in your Account at MATHESON, all purchases made in that account will be processed according to prevailing state tax exemption rules.
THIRD – Create an ONLINE User Account on this store website; and be sure to complete the step for "linking" your Customer Account to your online User Account. This will "link" your online purchase activity to your Customer Account; and your shopping cart and your invoices will be processed according to the same rules set up in the SECOND step, above. Also see How to Register.
The important detail is that you must register SEPARATELY - first for a MATHESON Customer Account and, second for an online User Account. For additional details on How to Register your account, see How to Register.
Once the setup is completed:
All orders - no matter how they are placed (phone, in-store, email, or online store) - will link to your Customer Account and will be processed according to prevailing state tax exemption rules. You will receive monthly statements, invoices, and you will be able to pay by check or pay online.
Customers who are set up for Tax Exemption (i.e., the Customer Account is set up AND the online User Account is linked) will have their orders processed accordingly - whether using a purchase order or a credit card at checkout.
We are sorry, but at this time, sales tax exemption rules cannot be applied to online orders unless BOTH the Customer Account and the online User Account are set up prior to the order being submitted.
