Accounting is a Business Service and Doesn’t Belong in the Sales Tax Base

Attempts to impose sales tax on accounting services are nonsensical: the data shows that they’re by definition business services, and thus do not fit in any rational sales tax base. Public finance experts agree that consumption taxes, like the sales tax, should not include business inputs. More than 90 percent of accounting services are either business inputs, or are sold to governments and nonprofits. Subjecting them to sales tax isn’t tax reform.
