Collecting MA Sales Tax on Upholstery

Paying sales tax on an upholstery job in Massachusetts can be confusing.  The MA Department of Revenue regulates upholstery as a “Fabrication”.  The total invoice amount is taxed at 6.25%.  Labor, supplies and fabric are taxable. Labor and supplies are taxable even if the customer supplies the fabric. 

Click here : read the MA sales tax regulation for upholstery.

Go to  (3) Fabrication and (5e) Specific Applications.

Not Taxable are certain repairs and shipping.

Cape Cod Upholstery Shop is now Solar Powered

Cape Cod upholstery now gets it’s electricity from a 10.38 kW roof top solar panel array installed at my residence next door.

Powered by 31 SunPower SPR-X21-335-BLK panels.

The SunPower panels were expertly installed by E2 Solar, conveniently located right here in Dennis, MA. I highly recommend both SunPower panels and E2 Solar.

  1. Furniture Upholstery is an Art, when done correctly.
