We have just concluded an audit by the state on our collection of sales tax. One of the areas they cited as needing to collect the tax (8%) in Philadelphia is in our print services labs (we do specialty printing for digital art production as part of students' assignments) as well as routine office materials production for staff use.
As students actually need to reproduce their work as part of the course, we have not been collecting tax. Anyone with a similar high end printing service successfully avoided having to charge sales tax for such services. (if so do you have a rationale used).
