Question by Avery: Are stores allowed to list prices that include sales taxes?
Say that a phone repair shop offers to replace a broken screen for 40 dollars as they list on their advertisements and websites. They then add and confirm that the prices listed will be the price the buyer will pay. Is this allowed? Or have they simply added the tax already?

Best answer:

Answer by tro
the shop has that option if it chooses but it needs to be clearly stated on the signs that tax is included
since sales tax is a state thing, advertising on a web site would NOT show tax included in the price since the item could be taxed at entirely different rates depending on where the customer is receiving the mdse

  1. Usually listed prices do not include tax.

    Sometimes, they might say “we pay the tax!!!” or “includes tax” (as a special promo).

    For a retailer that covers a wide area It’s sometimes hard to figure out what the tax collected might be, as California, for example has some 160+ sales tax rate area differences.

  2. No not usually because the sales receipt is supposed to list the subtotal amount and then the states sale and use tax amount and then also the local sales and use tax amount to come up with the total cost of the item at that time when you do pay for it OK.
    Hope that you find the above enclosed information useful. 08/20/2013

  3. It could also be that in this particular state their labor charges aren’t taxable. In some states certain “services” are not taxable. Every state is different as to what they consider a taxable “service” (ie: labor to provide that service).
