the tax man
i am trying to find out about sales tax, do market gardeners have to charge tax, this is my 3rd year selling at the local market and i am now a market manager, i am trying to figure out if we are supposed to be paying tax and if not why i am new to this and just trying to figure out all that it involves, we are a small producer market meaning the only things allowed to be sold must be grown by the seller. there are no regulations in place in this state on fresh fruits and vegetables, processed things like jams, jellies, canned foods, snapped beans or shucked corn can not be sold at our market, and must be prepared in a certified kitchen. so i am wondering how we get around the taxes, are we exempt or are we breaking the law somehow. at what point do we need to think about taxes, is there a limit to how much you can make until you have to charge tax ????
