I have a business that sell cabinetry and I currently purchase

Customer Question

I have a business that sell cabinetry and I currently purchase my product from this one factory that produce all my products. I was told if the factory pays the sales tax on all his raw materials. I shouldn't charge tax to my client (end users) because that would consider double taxation. If this correct? or should I also charge tax to my clients?

Hi and welcome to Just Answer!
That is not correct - if you sell goods to end users - you are required to charge sales tax unless these sales are specifically exempted.
If you pay sales tax to wholesalers - and these taxes are specifically listed on the invoice - you will deduct that amount from whatever you need to remit to taxing authorities.
If sales taxes are not listed on the invoice - it is considered as not paid even the price might include some build-in taxes.
