Did you know that 80% of moves into new homes in the U.S. occur between April and September? Whether you are moving to a new home, or just moving things into a storage unit, it’s important to note that most states only impose sales or use tax on moving services if they are accompanied by the transfer of tangible personal property.
According to SALT Talk Blog, like moving services, most states do not impose sales tax on the rental of self-storage units, with some exceptions. For instance, New York does not charge a sales tax when property is leased for storage but does impose a tax on the service of providing storage space.
So, maybe moving, known for being one of life’s most stress-inducing activities, might not be as stressful in the future.
