View Full Version : Do corporations pay sales tax on office supplies and equipment?

12-18-2017, 04:37 PM
Hello everyone! I have a small LLC that I formed as a partnership with another person a couple of years ago, selecting pass-through taxation. I am pleased with the setup. My husband (now retired) had a corporation (not LLC) many years ago. We had a disagreement about sales tax. He asked me why I had to pay sales tax when I bought a new office chair and ink for my printer. I explained that the sales tax is only waived if I buy stuff that I will re-sell to clients. Obviously, the office chair and ink are for my use in conducting my business. He claimed that when he had a corporation, he never paid sales tax for things like office chairs and ink, "so I don't understand why you chose to make your business an LLC". I find his claim about sales tax hard to believe - please weigh in and settle the matter for us with your knowledge.

I think Not all goods and services are taxed. Every state has its own policies, and rates can even vary from one county or city to another.

When you purchase office equipment (e.g., fax machines, copiers, computers, desks, etc.) and office supplies (e.g., stationery, paper towels, pens, pencils) for use in your business, you are required to pay sales tax. If you purchase any of these items and do not pay sales tax at the time of purchase, you owe use tax.

In my opinion, the policy depends on where your country lives because each country has different regulations regarding taxes. You can ask the tax consultant so that you don't have a problem with the law because of this.

Generally, tangible personal property sold to, purchased or rented by manufacturers is subject to retail sales tax, unless specifically exempt by law. Taxable examples include Office equipment and supplies.
