Collecting Sales Tax On Shipping and Handling Fees

Most states require that sales tax be collected on a separately stated, reasonable shipping charge. This charge is generally regarded as taxable when it is combined with a handling fee. Intuit charges a shipping and handling fee and collects applicable sales tax on this fee, in addition to the tangible product.

Because the following states do not require sales tax on shipping and handling fees, this tax is not collected in Idaho, Iowa, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Utah, and Wyoming.
