  Use tax on shipping or delivery charges
  Question
 

Q. If the seller charges me for shipping or delivery, is that amount subject to the use tax?

  Answer
 

A. Yes, the charge for shipping and handling is considered part of the gross receipts for the sale of any taxable goods or services. Calculate the use tax by multiplying the total cost of the taxable goods or services purchased, including separately stated charges such as shipping and handling, by the applicable tax rate described in FAQ 410.
