It seems like this happens every year as the season wears on, but it's getting worse and worse. WV requires we collect sales tax on services performed. We invoice about 70% of our clients and they get a statement showing the price+tax. No problem. The rest leave the money/check ahead of time. More and more who pay by check are leaving the sales tax off. WV is 6% so on a $100 property that's $6. What's the best course of action? If the customer leaves off the sales tax, is that something that can be wrote off as bad debt? Over the course of a week it can add up to over $100. I try to leave notes reminding homeowners that we have to collect tax. I had even thought about raising the price to the nearest dollar over what the sales tax was, then back it out in quickbooks, but that gets too confusing. Thoughts, suggestions?
