Miscellaneous changes for the March 2016 price lists

  • North Carolina’s sales tax rules changed effective March 1, 2016.Xactware’s interpretation of the main sales tax changes is that if the job is considered “retail trade" and/or the contractor is considered a “retail contractor," the total gross receipts will be taxed. If the job is considered “repair, maintenance, and installation service" and the contractor doing the work is considered a “real property contractor" or provides repair, maintenance, and installation services where the contractor’s activities do not otherwise meet the definition of a “retail trade" the total gross receipts will not be taxed.If there are questions on sales tax laws we recommend contacting the North Carolina Department of Revenue (www.dor.state.nc.us). For North Carolina March 2016 price lists, standard sales tax jurisdictions-such as “6.75%"-were modified to include two job types: Repair, Maintenance, Installation Services (“Rpr Maint Inst Svc") and Retail Trade. When selected, “Rpr Maint Inst Svc" will only tax material on most items. “Retail Trade" should be selected if the activity needs to be taxed on the total. A new jurisdiction type-such as “6.75% Total Tax"-was also created, which the estimator can select if they know the estimate needs to be taxed on the total.
