The gutter guys made their semi-annual trip to our house last month. The bill for their dirty work came in the mail a few days ago, and I was thrilled to see that no taxes are charged. We’ll pay $150 to Ned Stevens Gutter Cleaning and nothing to Aunt Virginia. Woo-hoo!
The bill confirms my speculation earlier this year that services, unlike sales, aren’t taxed — at least not in Virginia. I’m sure the bureaucrats will get around to that idea eventually, but it’s nice to know that not every penny we spend is taxed.
That’s great to know because my wife took our three kids for haircuts this week. The tab was $54.96 (including $15 for the exorbitant tips that my generous wife likes to pay). Aunt Virginia got squat!
