Amazon.com Purchases

The ProCard may be used to purchase products from Amazon.com that are not available from the catalog vendors in UMass BuyWays.   

Please note that Amazon.com charges sales tax for purchases delivered to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. If you use your ProCard to purchase from Amazon, you must complete the following steps so that your university purchases are not charged sales tax.
  1. Create an entirely separate profile (Amazon Account) for your university purchasing 
  2. Once you set up this separate UMass Lowell Amazon Account, click on “Your Account” and scroll down to “Settings” and click on “Amazon Tax Exempt Program”
  3. Upload copies of the ST-2 and ST-5 tax exempt forms (pdf)
Your university Amazon account must be separate from any personal accounts you have on Amazon. An individual personal purchaser cannot use the university tax exemption certificate on file to avoid paying taxes on personal items. This is a violation of the university’s tax exemption.
