    You need to call your tax athority onlyy they can give you the correct answer.
    Here in Juneau you have to collect tax from everybody that does not have a tax exempt card.

    Depends on the state. Some states require you to collect taxes on all goods sold, some require you to tax services also. Regardless, all money collected for goods or services is reported to the IRS as income.

    You do not necessarily need to "collect" taxes; you do need to "pay" taxes. For instance, Maine requires you to pay tax on anything purchased for resale. You do not need to specify any amount as being charged for taxes. However, if you do not collect taxes, you can not advertise that. Then you would declare goods resold and pay the tax.

    Make sense?
