MOST States DO charge for services...not only for goods. It is termed Consumer Use Tax. In States that collect this tax it is normally for lawn services (grass cuts but not for landscape type work--tree trimming or planting shrubs), maid services, cleaning services, repair services (since the home is not owner occupied), locksmith services and a host of other provided services. Our ruling was basically there is tax on everything but the trashout.
NOTE: Freddie, Fannie and HUD homes you dont charge sales tax due to being exempt ONLY IF YOU GET A COPY OF THE EXEMPTION CERTIFICATE!! Good luck with that unless you have a realtor that will supply the form on each home-- Forget getting this Sales Tax Exemption Form from the Service Company--easier to charge tax and submit.
