Important Tax Update
from RDD Auction, LLC.

Beginning on February 1, 2020 the North Carolina Department of revenue is requiring sales tax

to be collected on ALL auctions held in the state of North Carolina.

(N.C. Gen. Stat. § 105-164.4J)

This means that ALL auctions, at our home site and away, will be subject to sales tax.

If you have a NC Sales Tax Except number, we MUST have a completed E-595E form for our records. We have forms on-site but encourage you to fill out your form using the link below and have it completed and ready for us on sale day. Once this completed form is turned in and we have it on our records, it is not necessary to bring a completed form each time you make a purchase.

Form E-595E: https://files.nc.gov/ncdor/documents/files/E595E_6-19.pdf

You will NOT be considered tax exempt unless this form is in hand, or your information is already in our system. If you are an out-of-state buyer, you STILL need to have a North Carolina Tax Exception number on file with us. The process to apply for one can be found on NCDOR’s website at the link below.

Form E-595CF: https://files.nc.gov/ncdor/documents/files/e595cf_webfill_9-18_v1_final.pdf
