Have you ever driven through Wyoming? If you have, you know that vast areas of the state are unpopulated. For the most part, civilization is clustered near the northeastern town of Sheridan, the southeastern town of Cheyenne, and by beautiful Jackson Hole, nestled in the Grand Tetons. If driving is part of your job, it's easy to see how the miles could add up. The Wyoming Department of Revenue's news that mileage charges are exempt from sales tax is undoubtedly welcome.
In order to qualify for the exemption, mileage charges must be separately stated.
According to the Wyoming Department of Revenue, the following charges associated with a retail sale or service are "specifically exempted from sales tax:"
- Intrastate transportation of employees to/from a work site when paid or contracted for by the employer or employee;
- Intrastate transportation of freight;
- Interstate transportation of persons; and
- Interstate transportation of freight.
It's hard to keep track of the sales tax exemptions that exist in each state. Automation makes it simple.
