Requesting tax exempt status for AOL

Taxes – one of the two sure things in life.

AOL began applying sales tax to membership fees on November 1, 2007. This tax is based on the address you provided for your account record, but we understand that not all states enforce sales taxes. To avoid being charged sales tax for your AOL service, fax or mail your tax-exempt request and a copy of your state tax exemption certificate to the address below. Once we validate your certificate, we’ll update your account within five business days.

Note: Unfortunately, we can’t accept a W9 or Federal Tax ID number, so it’s very important you include the copy of your state exemption certificate.

  • Fax a copy of your state tax exemption certificate to: 703-433-7281.
  • Mail a copy of your state tax exemption certificate to:

State Tax Exempt Dept
P.O. Box 65110
Sterling, VA 20165-8011

Once we receive your fax or mailed copy, we’ll validate the state exemption certificate and apply the tax exempt status to the account. Then we’ll file the state exemption certificate with the master account number.
