If you’re shipping address is in Illinois, our on-line ordering process automatically adds applicable Illinois sales tax.

If you are an exempt organization (school, church, club, etc), we will refund the sales tax that’s automatically added to your order (please see the following procedure).


“I’m in Illinois and we’re exempt! How do I get a refund of the sales tax?”
STEP 1: Please email a copy of your organization’s tax exemption certificate. This certificate should be available from anyone in your organization who handles purchasing. This is a number that usually starts with E999x-… e.g., E9997-2231-07 .

Send your Illinois tax form to:
orders@BuzzerSystems.com -or- fax the form to 800-406-8569.

STEP 2: We will verify the tax form and refund the tax to your credit card (or PayPal, whichever applies).

STEP 3: We will email a revised receipt showing the refund of the sales tax.


“Is there a time limit for when this form needs to be sent to you?”
Please send this information with 5 days of your order. If it’s past 5 days, please send the information anyway and we’ll do our best to process it.


“I have purchased from you before. Do you have our tax exemption information on-file?”
We probably do. Please email us to find out if we need to refresh our files.


“I am using a Purchase Order. Will I be charged sales tax?”
If your Purchase order includes a tax-exempt disclaimer and exemption number, you will not be billed for sales tax.
