The Indiana Department of Revenue is making a move designed to encourage the donation of COVID-19 supplies.

The Department is issuing a waiver for the Use Tax on donated supplies aimed at fighting the spread of the virus. The waiver includes medical supplies, food, cleaning supplies, and other items.

Manufacturers making such donations are eligible for the waiver, as are groups or organizations making donations of medicine, medical supplies, and other goods if sales tax was not paid when receiving the item.

Guidelines can be found at the Indiana Department of Revenue website.
