Pampered Chef: PP Question

  1. I have a really stupid question, but I am new, so that's why I am always confused. When I open Pampered Partner, it asks for sales tax, food tax, and shipping tax. I have the first two figured out, but what is shipping tax? I live in Texas, can anyone please explain shipping tax to me!

    Thanks! :confused:

    Should be the same as your sales tax. I had the problem too! All of my calculations were off 22 cents...which is exactly 6.5% of $3.50! :)

    Some states don't have shipping tax...

    If you look at the bottom of the screen in Consultant Corner, under where you print out monthly specials (host & guest)... there is an asterisk that tells you which states don't have tax on shipping. I do some shows in NJ, but I live in CT, so I am familiar w/ this. If you need more info, let me know and I will help you find it in CC. :) Welcome! This is a GREAT site for any PC consultant!

    Consultant's Corner is also a great source to verify that you are charging the correct amount of sales tax in the county where your products are being shipped. I don't know what Texas is like, but in the several counties where I host shows, the sales tax varies by a few tenths of a cent. In fact, there are variations between communities within the counties.

    There isn't a government that ever saw a tax it didn't like, so make sure you're charging the correct amount for your show.
  5. Jessica,
    Here in TX, our shipping is taxable... so it's our good ole' 8.25% :eek: :p
  6. Thanks everybody,

    I think I get it now. For some reason I was thinking too hard and making the whole thing complicated in my head. I don't know why I was confused! :eek:

    Thanks for all your help!

    Where I live, the sales tax is different from town to town, so I always have to check the tax rate guide behind CC. In some cases, the town is split between two or even three counties, so I have to ask my host which county she lives in!

    It's crazy!

    I have to say that the most difficult thing to deal with here is the multiple sales taxes. They vary from town to town here as well, it's really frustrating.

    Nah. I live in a tax hell so I just have to tease someone that doesn't have a state income tax.

    But they still find ways to surgically extract money from your wallet, don't they?
Have something to add?
