Maybe I'm a little slow today. So your doing some type of improvement work that you don't need to collect tax on?

All landscaping, construction, installations, excavation are NON taxable. All the materials used are also not taxed because I pay sales tax up front before I resale. All that is half of my sales. The other half is maintenance-Taxable. So if I keep filing my sales tax returns with half of my sales as NON taxable thats an audit magnet. Then I also need to get capital Improvement forms from my customers that I dont need to charge sales tax since I have the tax ID #.

above one of the sections that you copied it will say "capital improvements" The first half of your list is NON Taxable.


And It says "In the case of a capital improvement, if you are a contractor who
purchases materials and supplies, you pay tax to the supplier and you
do not collect any sales tax from your customer."

If your during repairs you need to collect sales tax,but I think you said you were going to run this part through your other business.
