What is Sales Tax?
Sales tax is a consumption tax imposed when certain goods or services are purchased. The amount of sales tax owed is determined by a certain percentage of the purchase. Sales tax is collected by the seller from the buyer who then gives the sales tax to the government. Some purchases are exempt from sales tax so check your state laws to see if your purchases are exempt from sales tax.
