Sales Tax?

Hey ladies,

Have you heard about vendors charging a sales tax?

I work in an industry in which I hire vendors all the time (florists, caterers, photographers, etc) and no one has ever put tax on their bill.  They handle this on their own. 

Now, I hired a vendor and when I look at the contract it is an additional $300 in sales tax!  EEK  They are already $300 over my budget which would bring me to $600!

    I have! My photog, venue and florist are charging me a sales tax. I think just about any service or product in FL maybe even the USA they can charge you sale tax.

    It depends on the business and how they handle their tax... I own a small business, and I don't charge my customers sales tax because I pay taxes when I purchase my products wholesale (I never got a resale tax certificate basically). However, if I did have this certificate, I would not be paying sales tax when I purchase my products for resale, and thus my customers would be paying sales tax.

    HTH!

    I have been charged sales tax for video, venue, and my caterer... I think it is the norm to add taxes, just that some give it as part of their initial price, while some don't

    I believe that if you are getting a "product" out of the contract (photos, video, floral, food), you are to be charged sales tax.

    yeah we have sales tax on venue, photographer & florist for sure... my DJ isn't charging tax (unless it was already included - but it wasn't an itemized amount on our contract)...
