Sales tax is a tax on the gross purchase price of taxable items. Most purchasers assume that if there is no tax on the invoice, the purchase is not taxable. Unfortunately, most people and companies do not understand what is, or is not, taxable. Sadly, many vendors don’t know the rules and play it safe by taxing everything they sell. Even worse, many purchasers do not realize they are subject to tax, penalties and interest if they have purchased a taxable item on which tax was not paid.
