Thanks, Gord, for the real answer.
Because the tax laws are very similar in Texas
and Florida and the point is it is becoming more common than people think.
My point is we usually just build it into the price
and pay the City/State instead of having arguments such as this. Sorry, it is a sign of the times, if it moves, TAX it. If you can't tax it, fee it.
You have no idea how hard it is to run a small business today and how much it has changed in just the past 20 years. By talking about it, everyone else gets educated and does not beat up the company that charged the tax because we just send it off to the taxing authority.
There is no greater offense than charging
tax and not sending it to the taxing authority, so a company would be short lived to do so. Taxes
are nothing to mess with for a small business.
