By Robert Dumas on Thu, May 26, 2022 @ 11:00 AM

Sales of tangible personal property (TPP) are presumed to be taxable unless specifically identified as not taxable. However, certain exemptions could apply making the sale of TPP exempt from sales tax in some situations.

True, it’s a relatively new requirement to collect sales and use tax from remote customers, but it’s one the taxman has always taken seriously from businesses – and that seriousness is only intensifying.
