Effective July 1, 2018, businesses that provide the services listed below are required to collect the 6% sales tax from their customers for providing these services.

Retailers that make sales of these services will now charge 6% sales tax on the full sales price charged to their customers and may claim a resale exemption on their purchase of items provided to the customer as part of the service.

While the new sales tax requirement applies to many types of services, it does not apply to all types of services. For example, personal care services provided by barbers and hairdressers are not part of the expansion of taxable services.

The following services will now be taxable:
  • Extended Warranty Services
  • Facility/Event Admission Fees
  • Indoor Skin Tanning Services
  • Janitorial Services
  • Labor Charges for Installation or Repair of Tangible Personal Property, Digital Property, or Services Sold
  • Landscape Services
  • Limousine Services
  • Laundry/Dry Cleaning Services
  • Non-medical Diet and Weight Reducing Services
  • Pet Care Services
  • Rentals of Campsites
  • Veterinary Services
