Communications Services Tax
Enclosed is your 2005 Annual Resale Certificate for Communications Services Tax (Form DR-700015). This certificate is valid immediately and expires on December 31, 2005.
Communications services purchases for resale may be exempted from communications services tax if the purchaser has registered with the Department prior to making the purchase. The registered purchaser must provide the seller with a signed copy of its Annual Resale Certificate for Communications Services.
If a selling dealer has a copy of an Annual Resale Certificate for Communications Services on file for a purchaser, subsequent sales for the purpose of resale to that purchaser during the calendar year do not require a new copy of the certificate. However, a selling dealer must obtain a new copy of the purchaser's Annual Resale Certificate for Communications Services from its purchasers for sales made for the purpose of resale in subsequent calendar years.
An Annual Resale Certificate for Communications Services cannot be used to make tax-exempt purchases of services that are not for resale. Misuse of the certificate will subject the user to penalties as provided by law.
