I am now living in South Carolina where the tax rate is 6%. I am just getting started here after having a business in Vermont. If I understand correctly SC does not require me to charge customers tax on labor but does on materials. I want to charge the appropriate tax on mulch jobs but don't know exactly how to go about it. I install mulch at $50 yard installed. How do I charge the tax on the materials without charging the tax on labor without revealing what I consider to be material cost to labor percent. Sorry if this doesn't make sense. I just woke up from a nap.
