Collecting MA Sales Tax on Upholstered Furniture

Paying Massachusetts sales tax on upholstery can be confusing.  The Massachusetts Department of Revenue regulates upholstery as a Fabrication.  The total invoice amount is taxed at 6.25%.  Labor, supplies and fabric are taxable. Labor is taxable even if the customer supplies the fabric. Not Taxable are certain repairs, shipping, pickup and delivery.
