IT Contractor in NV - do I charge sales tax?
 
Hi all and sorry if this is in the wrong forum,

I have just started legally working in Nevada as a IT consultant, mostly working from home. It is time for my first invoice and I have a couple of issues.

Firstly: In the UK I was VAT registered and so charged 15% VAT on my services. Do I have to charge any form of sales tax here?

Secondly: What is a fair mileage charge for site visits? $0.55/mile?

Many thanks to all,

Jay

That's the standard federal rate you can claim as an expense on your tax returns.

No idea about the sales tax though.

You need to Google to find if Nevada has a sales tax for services. If you want a guess, I'd say no. But I ain't Googled it.

Generally most states do not charge sales tax for services, but you should check NV rules. If they do, then you get into one hellish collection, reporting and payment situation which is not really fun.

Below is an extract taken from this website. Although I aren't sure if it answers your question. It's about three quarters down the page.
