Kentucky Sales Tax & Nonprofit Fundraising

Kentucky Sales Tax & Nonprofit Fundraising

We have received clarification in relation to the current Kentucky sales tax law as it applies to nonprofit fundraising events:

  • Annual dinners
  • Golf outings
  • Bingo

For details on taxable and nontaxable items of these events, see Rudler PSC e-Tip Kentucky Sales Tax & Nonprofit Fundraising.

In addition, the nonprofit cannot issue its purchase exemption certificate to purchase the golf or dinner from the golf course or banquet hall without sales tax, unless the event is part of the nonprofit organization’s purpose.
