Exempt Entities

The Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration recently addressed the taxability of sales made by a nonprofit church organization.

Arkansas exempts sales of tangible personal property by churches and other charitable organizations. However, the exemption does not apply when the organization is engaged in business for profit, thus competing with for-profit businesses. Sales do not compete with for-profit businesses when (1) they are made by members of the organization and not by a franchisee or licensee, (2) the proceeds go exclusively to the nonprofit organization, and (3) the sales are not continuous and are not held more than three times per year.

Previously, Arkansas had a fourth requirement that the "dominant motive" of most of the purchasers had to be making a charitable contribution, not purchasing an item. However, that requirement was recently removed from the law and no longer applies.
