A rugged, whitewater river flowing northward through deep canyons, the New River is among the oldest rivers on the continent. New River Gorge National River in West Virginia encompasses over 70,000 acres of land along the New River, is rich in cultural and natural history, and offers an abundance of scenic and recreational opportunities.
Big Southern Butte is one of two domes rising from a sea of basalt near the center of the eastern Snake River Plain in Idaho. The butte is one of the largest volcanic domes in the world, but at 300,000 years old it is also one of the youngest. Hikers who trek to the 7,550-foot high summit are rewarded with spectacular panoramic views. Photo by Devin Englestead, BLM Upper Snake Wildlife Biologist.
First light at Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico. Established in November 22, 1939, the refuge has provided a critical stopover and wintering spot for thousands of sandhill cranes, geese and other waterfowl for 75 years. Bosque del Apache's sandhill crane population has multiplied from 18 birds in the 1840s to more than 20,000 birds today. Photo by Kim Hang Dessoliers (www.sharetheexperience.org).
State Tax Exemption Purchases and leases made directly by the Federal Government are generally (but not always) immune from State and local taxation (FAR 29.302). Alternate forms of evidence for establishing exemption from State or local taxes are described in FAR 29.305. In most cases, the copy of the contract, purchase order or credit card receipt is ample evidence that the sale was made to the federal government and is therefore exempt. Vendors sometimes also request a tax exempt number.
The tax exempt number in all States for all DOI components is 140001849. For additional state tax exemption information by various states, please visit GSA SmartPay
