Hi All!

 

 I have a home based business, that I'm just getting started, should I charge tax on orders?

It depends on where you are located.

 

In Ohio I do not charge sales tax on any baked goods that are not consumed at my premise.  So, as long as the client is not sitting at my dining room table eating the cake/cupcake/cookie I just sold them, I don't charge tax.

 

I do have to charge tax on delivery fees and rental fees since those items are not food.

Depends on the laws for your state.

If you pay sales tax on food when you go to the grocery store, probably,. But the rates might be different for different types of food, and if you collect tax you'll need to be registered with the state for a tax ID number to report and pay it. This is something that you need to check out with your county's business license/sales tax departments. The laws are different everywhere, so you should check with them.
