    When you calculate sales tax, do you deduct the cost of goods sold?

    For example; I am installing an AC, the AC cost $2,500.00, the labor for it will be approximately $450.00 so the total invoice amt. will be $2,950.00. I have not marked up the cost of the AC. Do have I to pay Sales Tax on the whole invoice amount?

    Depends on your State. Some charge tax only on products that are sold (A/C) others also charge tax on services.
    Did you buy the A/C for $2,500 and sell it for the same price?
    If you have already paid tax on the A/C then it is not necessary to pay it again.
