Tennessee Sale Tax Policy on Service and Repair
Question: If a customer ships equipment/property into Tennessee for repair, and I ship the equipment/property back to the customer when the repair is completed, must I collect Tennessee sales tax? Is this an exempt transaction in interstate commerce?
TN Department of Revenue: Yes, sales tax must be collected.
Tracer Electronics LLC TN Sales Tax Requirements on Equipment Repairs:
Our service department receives equipment nationwide and customers who reside outside the state of Tennessee are sometimes surprised when TN sales tax appears on their invoice. This becomes even more confusing when the same customers purchase new equipment from our Sales Department and notices that TN sales tax is not charged.
We want to explain why this is the case:
If you are sending us a machine (pipe & cable locator, GPR cart, push camera, leak detector, etc.) from outside Tennessee for technical services, e.g., repair or calibration, we Tracer Electronics LLC are required by law to charge Tennessee Sales Tax on parts installed and labor performed (TN Sales & Use Tax Code 67-6-102-22-F-iv). The sales tax rate is currently 9.75%.
Any transactions for a tax-exempt organization or a non-profit entity do not get charged TN sales tax, however we will need a copy of your local tax certificate at time of invoicing. Also any reseller with a resale tax certificate on file at time of invoicing will not get charged TN sales tax.
Please let us know if you have any questions or visit the Tennessee Department of Revenue. We appreciate your business and your continued support.
