Texas Tax-Exempt Entity Search

Search and obtain online verification of nonprofit and other types of organizations that hold state tax exemption from:

  • Sales and Use Tax
  • Franchise Tax
  • Hotel Occupancy Tax

Statewide group organizations might have one listing with “All Branches” as the city, rather than a separate listing for each local chapter.

The database is updated nightly. If you are unable to find a listing for an organization that you believe is exempt, you may contact us by email or call us at 800-252-5555.

Important – Please Read!

Certain organizations are not required to apply for exemption under Texas law such as state, local and federal governmental entities. This includes Texas Independent School Districts.

Therefore, these entities may not be found using this search, and an exempt verification letter may not be available to print for these entities using this application.

Furthermore, an exempt verification letter generated from this search for any entity is not a substitute for a completed exemption certificate that is required when claiming exemption from Texas taxes.
