Default Sales Tax in CA?

I'm pretty sure the answer is NO, but do any of you CA HI's charge a sales tax? We're providing a service not a product..... right?

I saw in other posts about this and it seems like it varies state to state.

Thanks

This question is best asked of your business accountant. You are treating this like a business and not a hobby, right?

Unless you're selling plungers or fly zappers to your clients, Ian is right. No sales tax on a HI.

California is not yet taxing services. At some point our Legislators could decide they're leaving money on the table.

It's been proposed many times. There is actually currently a proposal in the Assembly to tax at least certain services.

Though it's never made it far enough out of committee to get anywhere near a reality.

And hopefully, it stays that way.

The California Association of Realtors always comes out strongly opposed to the measure, so it never gets too much traction.

It's probably only a question of time before THE PEOPLES REPUBLIC OF CALIFORNIA gets a sales tax bill pushed through. And FYI, move it afoot to remove the Workers Comp exemption enjoyed by sole proprietors and Independent Contractors (working with multi inspector firms).
