The NTBNA further explained that the application may be submitted via the internet or in written form to any national taxation bureau. The following documents are required when applying for the reduction of commodity taxes.

2. A copy of the uniform invoice issued by the seller, or a copy of the receipt issued by the seller with a tax ID number exempted from using the uniform invoice; the uniform invoice or receipt should include the brand, product name, and model number.
