Attention P-Card Users: Amazon to Charge Sales Tax

As of Feb. 1, all orders on will be subject to sales tax. Ensure that you're not charged tax on your DPS orders by following these steps:

  1. Set up separate accounts for DPS purchases and personal purchases.
  2. Enroll in the Amazon Tax Exemption Program and upload this District Tax Exemption Certificate.
  3. Keep in mind that you may be charged tax on orders placed through other sellers who list products for sale on

Don't forget that you are responsible for reimbursing DPS for any taxes charged to your purchasing card. It is against board policy to use the District Tax Exempt certificate for personal purchases.
