Maine Sales Tax Question
I have, of late, been buying stuff from Pampered Chef, a corporation in Illinois.
They charge me sales tax for the merchandise as well as sales tax on the shipping and handling.
I talked to someone at their corporate offices, and they assure me that they pay all of those taxes to the state of Maine, but I am confused:
Does Maine require sales tax on shipping and handling charges?
Is there a way to declare these purchases but opt out of use taxes for them, given that PC is claiming that they pay the taxes here?
