As per the PA rev. code
Tax is to be collected on the full purchase price without any deduction on account of the cost of labor, shipping, handling, delivery, or installation. Separately stated charges for returnable containers are not subject to tax.
Since late fees are not part of purchase price, you do not collect sales tax on late payment charges.
Let me know if you have any question. Bonus and Feedback will be highly appreciated!!!
