Sales Tax

Sales tax is a tax imposed by the government on the sale of goods and services. It is usually calculated as a percentage of the purchase price and is typically collected by the retailer at the point of sale and then passed on to the government. The rate of sales tax can vary depending on the jurisdiction and the type of goods or services being sold. 

Use Tax

Use tax is a type of tax that is charged by many U.S. states on purchases made where sales tax was not collected. This often applies to items purchased out of state or online, where the seller does not have to charge sales tax. The purchaser is then responsible for paying the use tax directly to the state. The rate of use tax is usually the same as the sales tax rate in the purchaser’s state. The purpose of a use tax is to prevent a tax advantage for out-of-state purchases and to protect in-state retailers who must charge sales tax.

Franchise Tax

A franchise tax is a tax imposed by a state on businesses for the privilege of incorporating or operating within that state. It is not based on income, but rather, the value of the net worth of a business or some other type of criterion. Essentially, it’s the cost that a corporation or other entity must pay to do business in a particular state. The exact rules, rates, and calculation methods for franchise taxes can vary significantly from one jurisdiction to another. 

Other Indirect Taxes

Indirect taxes are taxes that are levied on goods or services rather than on income or profits. They are called “indirect” because they are often collected by an intermediary (such as a retailer) from the person who ultimately bears the economic burden of the tax (such as the consumer). These taxes are then passed on to the government.

Examples of indirect taxes include Value Added Tax (VAT), Goods and Services Tax (GST), excise taxes, customs duties, and the aforementioned sales and use taxes. The rate and structure of these taxes can vary greatly depending on the jurisdiction and the type of good or service being taxed. 

They’re referred to as “other” indirect taxes when they’re not the primary or most common forms of indirect tax, or when they’re specific to certain goods or services, like alcohol or tobacco taxes, environmental taxes, or taxes on luxury goods.
