If we are required to apply taxes based on your account’s tax location, you can submit a tax exemption certificate from the billing page. Under Billing Settings, in the Tax Exemption section, click Add Exemption Form.
In the window that opens, confirm or update your company name, then click Continue to Ryan ControlPoint. Ryan ControlPoint is a third party we partner with to manage tax exemption requests. On their site, you can fill out or upload an exemption certificate. After you submit your exemption certificate, the tax exempt status in Tax Exemption section changes to Not Exempt - forms pending review.
We review requests each billing cycle. Once we review your request, we send an email to the address on file and update the status again. It lists Exempt if we approve the request and Not Exempt with a reason (like expired forms or incorrect location) if we cannot.
Your tax location is typically based on your account address, which is initially set to the payment address of your primary payment method when you sign up. In some locations, we are required by law to consider other account details, like other payment addresses or IP addresses.
You can update your account address and view your account's tax location and rate at any time on the billing page. If you've set your account address correctly but your account's tax location is not what you expect, contact support for help.
USD is the only currency we accept for payments, so all invoices are in USD. We cannot provide invoices in other currencies. Learn more about invoices.
