´╗┐Shopping in States with Sales Taxes ...

from: www.TaxesExposed.com


In the United States, there are only six states that do not have sales taxes. For someone who is travel from a state with no sales tax to one of the states with sales taxes, it can sometimes get confusing. After all, you are used to paying the price that is marked, and sometimes may even have the exact change ready for the cashier, only to have to dig into your pocket or purse for more money. Of course, sometimes it can happen in reverse as well when someone from one of the states with sales taxes visits a state with no sales tax. In addition, it can become difficult for someone who travels to different states because the rates are different. Until you learn the rates for the different states you visit, there will also exist the confusion. You will eventually become used to the taxes in the states you visit the most and be able to know before you finalize your purchase how much you will need to pay.

You thought you didn't have to pay taxes if you didn't live in that state, right? Unfortunately, exemption from paying taxes to states with sales taxes only applies to merchandise that is shipped or delivered such as cars, furniture, or catalog or Internet purchases. Again, there are many exceptions, so before you buy something out of thinking you won't have to pay taxes on it for your home state, be sure to check the exemptions within both your state and the state where you are buying the merchandise. As a shopper, you will not know all the rules and regulations that apply to shopping in states with sales taxes, so you have to depend upon the retailer to keep you informed about such matters. Of course, if you have not traveled yet, you are free to contact any of the states with sales taxes in order to find out what their rules are and where any exemptions from sales taxes apply.

Sales taxes can be a complex matter for those who are from another state, so unless you are a tax expert, do not attempt to interpret the tax law on your own. The retailer knows whether he needs to charge sales tax based upon your situation, so allow him to use his expertise to give you the right advice. After all, it falls on him if he doesn't collect taxes on your purchase when he files his sales tax return. Someone who deals with taxes on a daily basis as a retailer does should surely know if a transaction is taxable or non-taxable.
