The sales tax rules for construction and real property transactions can be tricky to navigate, whether you’re the contractor or the property owner.

Construction and real property taxes are exceedingly complex, and it feels like they lead to more questions than answers. Who is obligated to pay sales or use tax on the transaction? How are different aspects of the project taxed?  What special circumstances change the tax treatment?

Taxability rules for these transactions vary from state to state which can trip you up. Regardless of what state(s) you are conducting construction and real property transactions in, you must handle your sales tax obligations correctly.
