Consider these charges when determining whether an emergency preparation supply can be purchased tax free during the holiday.
  • For example, you purchase a rescue ladder for $299 with a $10 delivery charge, for a total sales price of $309. Because the total sales price of the ladder is more than $300, tax is due on the $309 sales price.
