Course Description

Sales and Use Tax is a type of gross receipts tax imposed by most states on the sale of “tangible personal property” (such as computers, chairs, car parts, furniture, etc.) and certain services (such as information services, software services, etc.). Every state has a different set of rules that controls what types of items and services are taxed. Also, every state has different types of exemptions and exclusions from sales tax that favor some businesses and can be costly to others. 

Sale Tax depends on three main factors: your nexus (or which states you have a connection with - you are only liable to pay tax in states that you have a connection with), the products or services in your product catalog (different tax rates apply to different products) and when you are exempt from taxes (this can differ from state to state as well).

Determining the correct tax that you should apply on your invoices. The tax that applies to the products in your product catalog: certain kinds of products are taxed differently in the US (for example, food products are exempt from tax in California). You should check with your individual state government as to which goods and services sold in your state are subject to sales tax.
