To avoid sellers from outside a state to gain a competitive edge over sellers within their own state, all states apply a use tax on buyers inside the state. It requires all buyers (including both businesses and individuals) to pay use tax on an item that would typically have sales tax subjected on it, except when the same sales tax has been paid off already.
You need to remember, however, that sales tax payment is required to be made by a seller (on items that are taxable) to the state even if they have forgotten to charge sales tax. Moreover, corporate owners and officers may be held personally liable for sales taxes’ payments. A business may have penalties imposed on it in case it fails to remit all applicable use tax and self-assess.
Opportunities that help you get back sales tax you need not pay, lessen exposure to future audits, and chances for tax savings may be pointed out by a good sales tax consultant professional in your state. Planning becomes an essential aspect of managing local and state taxes.
