Business Location Determines Tax Rate If you are in the construction business, your tax rate is determined by the location of each construction project. If you are located in a municipality within a county, your tax rate is that of the municipality. If you are a craftsperson who sells at craft fairs where you rent a booth, that is your location for that period of time. You must use the corresponding tax rate. Service businesses use their base tax rate from their home or physical location.
