As an agency of the State of Connecticut, Eastern is exempt from Sales and Use Tax. Student activity funds which are administered under the same rules are included in that exemption. Therefore, all services, supplies, and equipment used in the club's regular operations are not taxable. Vendors questioning this should be referred to SABO. A copy of Eastern's Tax Exemption Certificate may be sent to the vendor upon request.
Items on which clubs are required to pay sales tax are food, beverages, and meals. Receptions and banquets held at outside venues require a separate certification to obtain tax exemption.
When planning your purchases for events or fundraisers, please keep in mind:
