A sales tax is a state government tax on the sale of goods or services. Typically, companies add sales tax to the cost of their products so that consumers end up footing the bill. Still, while consumers pay businesses for sales tax, it’s the job of the business to pass those funds onto the government. In most places, sales tax is referred to either as a value-added tax (VAT) or a goods and services tax (GST).
Most states do indeed have a sales tax, but Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, and Oregon do not.
Ultimately, the consumer is the one who pays for sales tax when they purchase an item. However, it’s the job of the business that sold the product to pass sales tax funds onto the government. That’s one reason why accurate financial documentation is so important for running a successful business.
