Sales tax definition

Sales tax is a consumption-based tax that is indirectly charged on the consumer at the point of final purchase of a good or service. The indirect feature of the tax means that the consumer bears the burden of the tax, however it’s collected and transferred to authorities by the seller. The most popular type of sales tax is the retail sales tax which is present on state-level in the United States. Under such a taxation framework, consumers pay the price of the item plus the amount of the sales tax which is collected by the store at the cash register and printed on the receipt. In the next section, you can get more insight into its concept as we illustrate the difference between the sales tax and value-added tax.
