Amazon Tax Exemption Program (ATEP)

The Amazon Tax Exemption Program (ATEP) allows pre-enroled ATEP buyers to apply a tax exemption to a participating seller’s offer during their purchase. The buyer’s exemption document is made available in your seller account, approximately 48 hours after the order is completed.

You automatically participate in the Amazon Tax Exemption Program (ATEP) when you save your Tax Settings, unless you opt-out by unchecking the box next to Enrol in the Amazon Tax Exemption Program.

You are able to enrol or un-enrol in ATEP following these steps:

  1. In Seller Central, go to Settings and click Tax Settings.
  2. Scroll to the Tax Calculation Rules section and locate Amazon Tax Exemption Program (ATEP).
  3. To Enrol, click the box next to Enrol in the Amazon Tax Exemption Program.
  4. To Un-Enrol, un-click the box next to Enrol in the Amazon Tax Exemption Program.
  5. Click the box at the bottom of the page to acknowledge your acceptance of the Tax Methodology and Terms.
  6. Click the Save Settings button.

Once you are enroled in ATEP, enroled buyers will have the option to apply their exemption at the time of purchase.

To identify an order with a tax exemption, use reporting available in your Tax Document Library. Your Sales Tax Report will populate data in the Buyer_Exemption columns and exemption documents will be available in the Tax Exemption Certificates tab within 48 hours of order completion. For more information, see the Get Tax Exemption Certificates help page.
