Indiana sales tax represents a distinguished and specified area of Indiana taxes. Indiana sales tax is explained in relation to a multitude of different aspects on life within the state. Some areas we will touch upon in this article include that of the application of Indiana sales tax to meals/banquets, non-profit organizations, photography, farm markets, and barbers/beauticians. In addition there also exists an area for deduction from Indiana sales tax, one of which includes those incurred by the sale of ethanol fuel. In general banquets, or events with the mass production of food present, will be subject to Indiana sales tax. This will be either attached to each individual payment or to the group's total costs. Tips do not incur taxes, however, as long as they were given voluntarily by the customer or consumer. In addition, Indiana sales tax does not accompany food delivery or beverage accompaniment. Meals held by non-profit organizations are exempt from the collection of Indiana sales tax as well. School meals from a college or university to its students are also free from such Indiana taxes. However, when holding such events within certain counties imposing taxes on beverages, for instance, they must be collected. As we have already touched upon in the previous paragraph, non-profit organizations do most often qualify for exemptions to Indiana taxes, such as that of sales tax, which we are examining. In order for non-profit organizations to be eligible for such exemption, however, they must first register with the non-profit division of the "Indiana Department of Revenue." They will receive a taxpayer id number following such registration. This applies to non-profit organization making both retail purchases as well as other types. The id number they receive is meant to be usedon certificates of Indiana sales tax exemption. If they fall into the category of "social" organizations, however, they may not be eligible, as specified by the IRS. This means that organizations, such as "homeowner's associations," will be required to pay Indiana sales tax. A lesser known area of sales taxation includes that of individual sale, such as that of photographers. When these individuals decide to sell their photos to customers, they fall into the category of retail, and therefore, must incur Indiana sales taxes. However, additional service charges will not incur any Indiana taxes whatsoever. Any costs due to modifications in color or tinting of a photograph must also be subject to Indiana sales tax. While we have seen the institution of Indiana sales tax, we may be equally informed to know that sales tax deduction may also occur. A deduction of that kind is available when concerning that of ethanol fuel, which is distributed by way of "metered pumps for retail sale." In general it is usually recognized as the combination of 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline. Specifically, a retailer will be allowed to deduct that which is necessary for remission in the quantity congruent to the numerical digit acquired by multiplying 18 cents by the gallon amount of ethanol fuel sold.
