No tax on food..



Sales tax on coal in NY is up to the individual Counties. State sales tax is 4% and the counties can tack on another 7% or more by special permission from the State. In Cattaraugus County where Lightning and I reside, the tax on coal is 3%.

There;s not supposed to be any sales taxes on necessities: heat, clothing, or food (as long as it wasn't prepared FOR you). If your supplier is taxing you on coal I'd demand all the tax money back!



Exempt items


Fuels: Charcoal; Combustible fireplace logs; Firewood, kindling; Lighter fluid for grills; Propane gas for grills
Gas, steam, electricity and heating fuel

Interesting Smitty. THANK YOU for the info. The tax I was charge was only on 4 bags LAST YEAR. But they did load it for me saving my back so I will consider that money well spent!

It's beginning to look like Ohio is the worst offender here. A double whammy, as anthracite is rather expensive here to start with, and then you have to pay roughly 6.5% to 7.75% tax on top of that.

No coal tax in Maine.
No wood pellet tax either, IF they are used as heating fuel. I use them for cat litter, and I'm told some people use them for horse bedding. In that case they are supposed to be taxed. The obvious tip-off is when you buy just two or three bags of pellets. Some stores just assume it is for heat and don't tax, some ask you, one even asks you to sign a slip certifying they will be used as fuel.

So, if you get a tractor trailer load of coal delivered from Pennsylvania to Ohio, do you have to pay taxes on it?

I don't think so, but I'm not 100% sure. It would seem that "Don't ask, Don't tell" should apply here though.

No tax on coal here in RI, or food, clothes under $250. The governor tried to make everything taxi me in return for lowering the rate by 1%. That didn't fly, but now over the counter meds are taxed the 7%.

I would expect your Ohio sales tax law says the buyer of a product is ultimately responsible for paying any state sales tax. The state tax that applies is where delivery takes place. So you can very likely avoid paying on a tractor trailer load, but you have broken the law.

Actually I believe that Yanche is right, and you are supposed to declare everything that you have purchased and for which State tax is still due when you file your State tax return.

I stand corrected. In Ohio, as the law is currently written, out of State purchases are not subject to Ohio State sales tax if the company from which you have made the purchase has no physical presence within the State of Ohio. Apparently that is soon to be changed though.
