  3. PPE Donation Without Proper Documentation Could Lead to Penalties

Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, many manufacturers pivoted their production lines to provide personal protective equipment (PPE) to first responders and other nonprofit organizations. But, without the proper documentation, these same businesses could face sales and use taxes, penalties and up to 12 percent interest on the total value of the donation.

Reinhart attorney Don Millis explains the need for Certificate of Exempt Status (CES) documentation for any company donating PPE.

If you have any questions about whether or not your donation of PPE requires a CES, please contact Don Millis, Sara Rapkin, Kristina Somers or Doug Pessefall in Reinhart’s State and Local Tax Planning group.
