    Do you need to charge sales tax to commercial accounts or city accounts?

    A city would probably be tax exempt,other commercial accounts you would need to ask because some might be.

    What do you need to do if they are tax exempt?

    When you report the sale on your sales tax form report it as non taxable sales.I have only had 1 account like that.

    they should supply you with a tax exempt form also. just in case you ever get audited.
