Be Prepared When Visiting a Local Store This Summer!
Summer is often the time when our local suppliers choose to update systems and processes, including their tax exemption policies and procedures. Please make sure you check our Local Supplier Information Webpage BEFORE heading to the store so that you have the most up-to-date information we have regarding doing business with that supplier.
A couple of examples of suppliers that require you to bring information with you to the store to make a purchase on behalf of Iowa State University with your P-Card or T&H Card include:
- Walmart – You must have the Walmart-specific tax id number with you to make a tax-exempt purchase at the store. *****As of 8/14/2023 the Duff Avenue Walmart in Ames will require you to provide a screenshot of the document linked above.*****
- Menards – You must have the Menards Tax Exempt Barcode with you to make a tax-exempt purchase at the store.
- Michaels – You must have the Michaels Pro Discount Barcode with you to make a tax-exempt purchase at the store.
The Local Supplier Information Webpage also contains information on how to make tax-exempt purchases on behalf of Iowa State University at Fleet Farm, Home Depot, Hy-Vee, Lowe’s through the Lowe’s Pro catalog in cyBUY, Sam’s Club, Target, and Theisen’s.
The Local Supplier Information Webpage will always contain the most current information that has been provided to Procurement Services. If you have additional information about using your P-Card or T&H Card at a local supplier that would help your colleagues to do business with that supplier, please email email@example.com to let us know! Procurement Services is always looking to expand the resources we have available for our colleagues!
