Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi. Great Question. I would first check if the Retailer has a Form ST-120.1 Contractor Exempt Purchase Certificate
A contractor or subcontractor must charge sales tax to its customers if the work performed is repair, maintenance, or installation work.
Hi. Thank you for the additional details. In that event, he does not charge the sales tax - the retailer would. Let me know if you have any questions.
Here is a link:
It talks about "installing".
Hi. Sorry for the delay.
The subcontractor would only charge tax on the materials. not the labor.
