Why do we pay tax on shipping and handling I ordered Pampered

This answer was rated:

Why do we pay tax on   shipping and handling? I ordered Pampered Chef products and I didn't used to pay tax on shipping and handling.

Is this AZ sales tax you are referring to or another state?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
It would be all states. I am a Pampered Chef Consultant and I also sell out of state. The order forms are designed for nationwide sales, and they all include shipping and handling to be taxed.

Additional information: The order form says that all states are taxed on tohis except AK DC DE IA ID IL MA MT NH OH OK OR UT AND WY
Every state has separate rules on what is taxable in their state. Some states tax S/H and others do not. Some states tax S/H if the charges are included in the price of the item, but not if they are stated separately on the invoice. There is no one generic answer to this question, as the rules are different for each state.
