Please note that it is not allowable for individuals to use UVM's Amazon business account for personal purchases (using your own personal credit cards)
This type of activity puts UVM’s sales tax exemption with the State of Vermont at risk. Individuals must deactivate any personal credit cards (PDF) associated to the UVM Amazon business account effective immediately. It is the individual's responsibility to calculate the state sales tax due to the State of Vermont when completing personal tax forms for 2018.
As of February 14, 2017, all Amazon accounts and purchases must be consolidated to the centralized University of Vermont Amazon Business account.

These resources include instructions on what to do if you are already using your @uvm.edu account on Amazon.com.
