As a federally tax-exempt institution, Dartmouth College is also classified as an exempt organization in many, but not all, states. This means that the College is exempt from "transactions privilege" and/or sales tax in these states.
Currently, the College has tax-exemption certificates for 13 states. These certificates allow an exemption for purchases made by the College in the ordinary course of conducting its educational and research activities.
