Illinois Sales Tax
Specialty Graphics Supply Inc. is located in Saint Charles, Illinois. As an Illinois business, we are required to collect 8.0% Sales Tax for all orders shipping to an Illinois address or picked up in person at our warehouse.

Purchasing Supplies through our Website Tax Exempt - CRT-61 Form
Illinois customers that purchase vinyl materials and other supplies for resale must complete a CRT-61 Certificate of Resale form in order for the purchase to be tax exempt. Our web site will automatically add sales tax to every order shipping to an address within the state of Illinois. If you are a business making purchases for resale, we can set up your account as tax exempt so tax does not appear on your orders.
Please note that the CRT-61 Certificate of Resale will remain in our system for four years from the date that it is signed. After four years the CRT-61 will expire and a new CRT-61 form will need to be completed.
State and local government and other tax exempt entities
In lieu of the CRT-61 form, please send us a copy of your sales tax exemption letter issued by the Illinois Department of Revenue. Exemption letters can be faxed to 1-866-640-1090 or scanned and emailed to "firstname.lastname@example.org". After submission, please follow the steps below to have an account set up as tax exempt.
Here are the steps to have your business or exempt entity set up as tax exempt:
- Create or Register an Account on our website. To register an account, scroll down to the bottom of this page and select the registration link. Only registered users can be set up as tax exempt. If you place an order as a "guest", sales tax will be added to your order. Creating an account on our website is also recommended as it will store addresses, your order history and credit card information if desired.
- Complete the CRT-61 Certificate of Resale form and return it to us by fax at 1-866-640-1090 or scan and email it to "email@example.com". Please note that we are required to verify your business registration and eligibility for sales tax exemption with the state of Illinois as part of our review. Government and other exempt entities should forward their exemption letter issued by the Illinois Department of Revenue.
- Call us at 1-888-330-6172 or use our Contact Us form to request that we set up your account as sales tax exempt.
- Once the account setup is complete, you may place your tax exempt order through our website using your registered account. Please remember that you must use your registered account to make tax exempt purchases. Orders placed as a "guest" are taxable and cannot be reversed.
