  • Sales Tax on Grooming?

    Do those who lease their own business have to register to charge State sales taxes for grooming services?

  • #2
    Yes. As a matter of a fact, I just got done writing out my late check for last quarters sales tax.

      there is no sales tax on grooming in the state of ct. whether you lease or not has no bearing on collecting sales tax, if it is due.

        one more thing. you still have to register and file quarterly, or yearly if you qualify, even if the amount owed is 0.

            No sales tax on grooming here in Ohio yet. I do sell a teeny tiny bit of retail. I do collect and pay sales tax on that.

              WV does

              We have to in West Virginia. I pay ours monthly. The beauty salons and barber shops don't have to though. I'm not sure why we do if they don't.

                That just stinks. Could it be that the "tax collectors" think that grooming is a luxury and your own haircut a necessity? Hmmph!!!

                  There is no sales tax on grooming here either, neither is there for barbers and hair stylists. Wonder why its like that where you're at? strange

                    No sales tax on grooming in CT. They just get you on everything else. Like property tax!! I'm about to go into the poor house...hopefully it has cheaper property tax than the house I'm in now!!! $$$$

                      O guess since Texas does not have a state income tax, they tax everything else that they can. We pay taxes for just about any "service" along with product purchases. So, yes, I collect and pay sales tax on my grooming services. Worse yet, being mobile, I have to keep track of the tax rate for each little town I work in as I have to collect the tax for "that" city when I am doing business there. Then file long form to turn in my sales taxes so each city gets their cut.
                      What a pain.

                            I sincerely thought I was the only one dividing my sales tax to a dozen suburbs every month! I don't know that its any comfort to know I'm not alone though... its still a serious PITA.

                              As far as I know there are only 2-3 states that don't charge sales tax. OH and CT are two I know off the top of my head. There may be a third.
                              In NY you have to apply to collect sales tax. I was able to do it online and had my permit within 2 weeks to post. I also had to get an EIN to get the permit, but that I did online too. Being mobile I have to collect sales tax depending on the rate of the customers area. Where I live it's 8%, most of my customers live where it is 7% but I'm always having to look it up. Then I have to report sales tax from multiple areas and fill all that out. Just got my first form to submit actually. Miss grooming in OH, no tax to deal with!
                              Oh and beauticians/barbers don't charge tax in NY either.
