An applicant claims the company is exempt from sales tax as a registered "not for profit" corporation. Are they?

Answer: Possibly. It depends on applicable State law. In California, few non-profits are exempt from sales tax. The customer should be willing and able to produce and deliver some document issued by the State Board of Equalization [or similar State entity] confirming that the State considers all purchases made by this entity to be exempt from sales tax.
