Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Not really in that regard. You are talking about an exemption from sales taxes when you are purchasing equipment and materials; there is no sales tax on the purchase of real property, including buildings. The only other tax involved to the purchaser if you are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization is that you would not be subject to local real estate taxes for periods beginning at your purchase date.
As a non-profit organization you will have to be certain that the building is used to further your exempt purpose and not just part of it being used for your office or your organization will be subject to the "Unrelated Business Income Tax" on any portion of the building not devoted to your exempt purpose.
