Customers exempt from paying sales tax should request tax-exempt status from our Finance Department before completing any purchases in the Ohio History Store. Once approved, tax-exempt customers will be able to complete all future online purchases without being charged sales tax.

Tax-exempt status requires a valid tax-exempt ID number and verification by OHS staff.

A copy of your Blanket Tax Exemption Form from the State of Ohio is required to process your tax-exempt request. Your Blanket Tax Exemption Form from the State of Ohio and a completed OHS tax-exempt request should be submitted via fax to 614.297.2411 or e-mail to taxexempt@ohiohistory.org. Call 614.297.2399 for any questions regarding the Tax Exemption form.

Completion of the OHS tax-exempt form will register your organization with the Ohio Historical Society e-commerce system. Once tax-exempt status is verified, users will be considered tax-exempt at any OHS store and the online Ohio History Store.
