Sales Tax Exemption: How do I get exempt from state sales tax?

Resale Tax Certificate

In Texas, the sale of a taxable item that is intended for resale is exempt from sales tax. For example, if you operate a shop, you can purchase inventory for the shop tax-free from a wholesaler. This is because you intend to sell the goods to customers and collect the tax on the sales.
In order to purchase resell goods tax-free, you need to provide the seller with a resale certificate. By law, the seller is required to charge you sales tax on the goods if you do not provide a certificate.
In essence, the resale certificate is a guarantee to the seller that you intend on reselling the items meaning the tax will not be collected at the time of purchase.

Non-Profit Tax Exemption Certificate

In Texas, any educational organization can apply for tax-exempt status. If granted,the organization will not have to pay sales tax on products purchased for educational purposes.

Microsoft Outlook: How can I save a copy of emails in the mail server ?

  • In the Tools menu, click E-mail Accounts.
  • Click View or change existing e-mail accounts, then click Next.
  • Select your ISP account, and then click Change.
  • Click More Settings.
  • Click the Advanced tab, and under Delivery, check the “Leave a copy of messages on the server” check box.
  • Select one of the following options:
    1. Remove from server after x days. E-mail messages are downloaded to your computer but remain on the e-mail server for the number of days that you specify. This is the most common setting for people who want to read their messages at work but also download them for permanent storage on their home computer. We recommend that you choose the smallest number of days that suits your needs. The longer you leave messages on your e-mail server, the greater the risk of exceeding your mailbox size quota. This has become less of an issue recently with larger available hosting packages.
    2. Remove from server when deleted from ‘Deleted Items’. E-mail messages are downloaded to your computer but also remain on the e-mail server indefinitely until you delete the e-mail message in Outlook and empty the Deleted Items folder. Just deleting the message doesn’t remove the message from the e-mail server. If you do not select either check box, messages are left on the server indefinitely. You will eventually exceed your mailbox quota. This has become less of an issue recently with larger available hosting packages.
  • Click OK, and then click Finish.

CPanel Emails: Cannot Send or Receive Email

There are several common reasons for being unable to receive emails when using a webmail client. These reasons include, but are not limited to – temporary mail server problems, exceeded space quota of the email account, incorrect MX records of the domain.

  1. Login into www.mywebsite.com/webmail/ ( “www.mywebsite.com” referring to your website’s url address) and try to send email or receive email.
    If this works, it typically is an email client (e.g. Outlook/Microsoft365) server problem or an incorrect setting/configuration, etc.
  2. If your webmail cannot send or receive email, please provide the following information as it will be helpful in troubleshooting your email issue.
    1. What is the exact issue you are having with your email and when does it occur? (Please do not use “Email doesn’t work”, since there are a broad number of possible email issues and it will be difficult to help you if we don’t know where to start.)
    2. Is there an error message/pop up when you send or receive email? If so, when does this occur? Please provide the exact error message or send us a screenshot of the issue.
    3. Is your website currently running? If your website is temporarily down, your email server will not work during that time. If this is the case, we may need to troubleshoot your website hosting server issues. In most cases, both will function properly if the web server has no issues.
