However, services are not taxable. EXAMPLE: Customer pays sales tax if purchasing taxidermist’s animal or if customer is billed time and materials the sales tax is collected on the materials. However, no sales tax is charged to the customer if customer brings in his or her own animal and is only charged for the mounting service. In this situation, the taxidermist must pay sales tax on all materials used in mounting the customer’s animal.
