Re: Question about charging tax and shipping queens
Laurie, I would highly suggest you take this question to a tax adviser. For example you umay be exempt o the bees but required to tax for the equipment sold with them. There are not taxes on internet or catalog type purchases but it is my understanding you sell only locally for now. Here in Nevada there is no tax for non prepaired foods. Honey qualifies. But there may be a tax for selling bees. No idea about pollination services etc. I have to get busy about finding out this stuff myself. I know most markets in the area require you to have a tax i.d. and collect the taxes on your sales before you pack up and leave. Promoters can get hit by the government if they have shows where vendors did not charge or pay taxes.
Stand for what you believe, even if you stand alone.
