I had a question related...
I had a question related to the CA sales tax exemption for Non Profit organizations (church). I know that my organization in Texas is able to purchase i.e. vehicles for their congregation and they have obtained an exemption where they do not pay sales
tax on the purchase of the vehicle. Does this apply in CALIFORNIA? What form would I need? Thanks.

Your organization would have to also be registered in California and then obtain a tax exemption certificate. I can explain it better via telephone. Pls let me know and I'll send an offer.
