If your church is PA tax-exempt, whether or not you applied under the Allegheny Region Blanket Tax Exemption or on your own, your church is now eligible to fall under the blanket exemption under the ARC. The Department of Revenue is starting fresh with these exemptions this year so now is the time to make the change.
This means that once your church is registered under the ARC Blanket Exemption, you do not have to renew or do anything again on your own – everything will be handled through the ARC. Once I send all of the updated information to the tax registration office your church will fall under the ARC blanket, which is a benefit of being a part of the ARC.
Once the updates are made, any of our churches not listed under the ARC blanket will be on their own to renew.
So, I’m asking once again, if you haven’t already done so, to please send me a copy of your “Sales and Use Tax Certificate of Exemption” from the Commonwealth of PA Department of Revenue.
Please send me a copy of your exemption certificate no later than Tuesday, June 23, 2020. You can email the copy or send through the USPS.
If you have any questions, please contact Karen.
