Collecting MA Sales Tax on Upholstery

Paying sales tax on an upholstery job in Massachusetts can be confusing.  The MA Department of Revenue regulates upholstery as a “Fabrication”.  The total invoice amount is taxed at 6.25%.  Labor, supplies and fabric are taxable. Labor and supplies are taxable even if the customer supplies the fabric.

Read (3) Fabrication and (5e) Specific Applications.

Not Taxable are certain repairs and shipping.
