Why am I being charged sales tax
on my upholstery work?
According to the Massachusetts
sales tax code:
Reupholsterers. The reupholstering of furniture,
including the making of a new slipcover, is a fabrication.
A fabrication is subject to the sales tax. The
reupholsterer shall collect the sales tax from the
customer. The tax applies to the total amount which the
reupholsterer charges the customer, whether or not the
reupholsterer states the material charge and labor
charge separately in the bill. This is also true if the
customer furnishes the material. Where a reupholstering
business performs a job which involves essentially a
mechanical or structural repair, the transaction is a repair
and is taxable as a repair, not as a fabrication.
