Major items exempt from the (PA sales) tax include food (not ready-to-eat); candy and gum; most clothing; textbooks; computer services; pharmaceutical drugs; sales for resale; and residential heating fuels such as oil, electricity, gas, coal and firewood.


BUTTT ....I jsta bought 4 items off eBay in the last couple of days from businesses ..... and unless they will change the amount on my PayPal statement going into my credit card - NONE of these charged me sales tax ...


Same here. I bought some MSD parts. One came from South Dakota, no tax. The other came from Virginia and they charged me tax. Both were paid via pay-pal. Was pretty pissed when I saw that. Took my savings from $100 to $65.

Well each and everyone of you is crying ,but yet you still use pay pal , credit cards, debit cards , or pay pal credit. what ever happened to using cash or even a us postal money order. If don't want to pay the tax on that used part then be smart and find a way around it. It's "NOT" un-American to not want to pay taxes, at least all taxes. That's what got us all here in the first place , or did you all forget what this Holiday is all about? Sure, if you try real hard you may remember your grade school teacher telling you about the Boston Tea Party that was not the main reason ,but the straw that broke the camel's back. Tea was a staple of society back then and being over taxed on the one thing that all members of society enjoyed as a simple ( relatively affordable ) pleasure, is what broke the Camels back.
With convenience comes a price. You are far better off with paid advertisements of Mopar Collectors Guide and Hemmings Motor news than you are with your free add on ebay or craigslist.
Credit cards , Debit cards and pay-pal are bad deals , but they are convenient , and with that comes a price.... your freedom and your privacy . Cash is "KING" for those reasons explicitly . That is the end of my rant .

I just received an exemption link from Ebay requiring proof of being a legitimate business. I've also received them from several other vendors that we deal with.
We'll see beer

No It means if I am a legitimate business then I am tax exempt when I purchase things for resale. IE: parts for a customers car.

However I have to collect those taxes when I invoice the customer and then pay the collected taxes to the State dept of revenue. Those collected taxes include any markup I put on the parts.

Items bought for personal or shop use are taxed separately and I am required to report those purchases as well and pay the appropriate tax.

This is what created this whole mess. people were buying on-line to avoid paying the sales tax and the states whined that they were losing to much revenue. Hence the supreme court ruled that on-line businesses had to start charging sales tax. beer

Selling something at a loss is not income, unless it was written off. All you tax experts should know that.

as i understand it, if i sell something i have cluttering up the garage, technically, the sales tax is charged, but e-bag tacks it on the purchase in a separate transaction, therefore, i don't collect the tax and have to remit it to the state. they do this.
however, i'm SURE the state WANTS me to report this as INCOME so they can grab all they can.
SORRY STATE, it AIN'T HAPPENIN' !!!!!!!!!
if the states would manage their funds like they should, it would be a different story, but they don't.
a bad guy i guess i have become............... apimp

The difference is that most of the small vendors just bite the bullet and pay the sales tax out of their pocket from the final price. ie: you buy a part for $100. In reality, the seller should have charged you $106 in PA. But the seller counts it as a sale at $94 and collected the $6 tax in the "included" price. Which is ILLEGAL in PA. But try to collect 6% sales tax on a negotiated price. Everyone will walk away from you.

You also need to have a PA sales tax # in order to get a vendor space at Carlisle. If you do not have a sales tax #, be ready for a visit from the tax man.
