Hello, I'm Jeremy from TurboTax with important news on state sales taxes. It's likely you are so used to paying sales tax when you go shopping that you don't even think about it any more. Although limited, there are a few things you can do to minimize the amount of sales tax you pay each year. Let me tell you a little bit about how it works first. A sales tax is always charged by state and local governments and is based on purchases you make within the state. Generally states will charge a fixed percentage based on the price of the item you purchase and unless you return the item to the store, you never see the money again. Because the sales tax rate varies from state to state, there is nothing wrong with making your purchase in a state that charges a low rate or even none at all. Most states, however, either reduce the rate or exclude the sales tax altogether for certain items such as prescription and non-prescription drugs and for most food. With Internet sales booming recently, Federal lawmakers passed legislation prohibiting an online merchant from charging you sales tax unless you live in the same state as the business. This means that if you live in New York, but purchase something online from a California merchant, no sales tax is added to your total. For more tax tips and guidance, visit TurboTax.com.
Hola, soy Jeremy de TurboTax con noticias importantes sobre impuestos estatales a la venta. Lo más probable es que estás tan acostumbrado a pagar impuestos a la venta cuando vas de compras que ya no piensas más en ellos. Aunque limitadas, hay algunas cosas que puedes hacer para minimizar la cantidad de impuestos a la venta que pagas cada año. Primero, déjenme decirles un poco acerca de cómo funciona. Un impuesto a la venta es siempre cobrado por los gobiernos estatales y locales, y se basa en las compras que realizas en el estado. En general, los estados cobran un porcentaje fijo sobre la base del precio del artículo que compras y a menos que devuelvas el artículo a la tienda, nunca verás el dinero otra vez. Debido a que la tasa de impuesto a las ventas varía de estado en estado, no hay nada malo en hacer tus compras en un estado que cobre una tasa baja o incluso ninguna en absoluto. Sin embargo, la mayoría de los estados, reduce la tasa o excluye por completo el impuesto a la venta para ciertos artículos, tales como medicamentos con y sin receta médica y para la mayoría de los alimentos. Con el reciente auge de las ventas por Internet, los legisladores federales aprobaron una ley que prohíbe a un comerciante en línea cobrar impuestos a la venta a menos que vivas en el mismo estado donde está el negocio. Esto significa que si vives en New York, pero compras algo en línea de un comerciante de California, ningún impuesto a las ventas se añade al total.
