What Johnny said. Just do it and don't bring it to anyone's attention. If asked just say you are required by law to collect the tax.

It's defined as a taxable service here. Everything my company does or will do for the foreseeable future is taxable. Only thing we may do some day that's non taxable is rough grading. From finish grading to lawn mowing its taxable.
