Walmart Tax Exemption Program Enrollment

Many organizations qualify to make sales tax-exempt purchases. The Walmart Tax Exemption Program (WTEP) supports sales tax-exempt purchases from Walmart.com. Please contact your tax advisor to determine if your organization qualifies for sales tax exemption.

If your organization is qualified to purchase tax-exempt goods, the Walmart Tax Exemption Tool will guide you through the process of enrolling in WTEP. 
 You will be prompted to answer questions specific to the type of exemption applicable to your organization and select the states in which you qualify for sales tax exemption.

Even though you may be registered in WTEP, sales tax may still be charged on items you order from any Marketplace Retailer through the Walmart.com website as WTEP enrollment does not apply to Marketplace Retailer transactions. Tax-exemption also excludes Photo, Pharmacy, Tire, and VUDU items. Please see the tax-exempt help page below for more information. Exempt customers may still be charged product fees as required by applicable state law.


The following conditions must be met to apply for WTEP:
  1. A Walmart.com account must be created. You will be prompted to create an account once you start your application below. Please create an account (or log in with your existing account) using your organizational email address and provide the first and last name of the primary individual who will be purchasing for the organization’s tax-exempt purchases.
  2. You must provide valid tax-exempt document(s) for each state where exempt goods are shipped or picked up in store (Pick up Today). We require:
  • A current sales tax certificate in accordance with state laws and our Terms and Conditions
  • A current sales tax license, or exemption certificate, and tobacco license (if applicable).
