Sales Tax Changes Presented by Marc Benadiba Effective April 1, 2009, the state sales and use tax rate increases by 1%. The 1% tax rate increase will expire on either July 1, 2011, or July 1, 2012, depending upon whether voters approve to extend it.
Sales Tax Basics Sales and Use tax are generally only applied to purchases of tangible goods (equipment, furniture, etc.). Sales and Use tax are applied at the same percentage rate (8.25% for the County of San Luis Obispo).
Sales Tax Basics Vendors (usually) include sales tax on their invoices billing the University for the purchase of tangible goods. If the vendor does not charge the University sales tax for the purchase, then it is the responsibility of the University to apply use tax to the purchase.
Sales Tax on Labor In general, sales taxes are not applied to stand alone labor charges. However, some labor charges in relation to taxable sales may be subject to sales tax. For example; Fabrication Labor is considered taxable Manufacturing a new piece of machinery Sizing and engraving a ring you are selling Cutting metal or lumber being provided to a customer Altering a new suit to better fit the buyer
Sales Tax on Labor Sales tax generally does not apply to charges for installation labor. For example; tax would not apply to your itemized charges for installing a car stereo. Sales tax generally does not apply to repair labor. Repair labor is work performed on a product to repair or restore it to its intended use. For example: Repairing the broken keypad on a cell phone Replacing a hard drive in a used computer Repairing damaged paint on your car
An employee purchases books from Amazon using the University Procurement (credit) card. The receipt provided to the employee does not include sales tax. Accounts Payable records and pays the charges for the books purchased, charges the department use tax and remits the use tax to the State Board of Equalization. Use Tax

P-Card Updates March 27 was the last day to use GE Capital P-Cards. American Express cards can be picked up in Contracts, Procurement, and Risk Management located in Bldg 1 Room 128. Why did we transition to American Express? American Express purchased the corporate portion of GE Capital. The CSU decided it was in our best interest to continue with the current P- Card contract. What do I do if a vendor does not accept American Express? Other purchasing methods such as Direct Pays, Purchase Orders, and Staff Reimbursements are available. If a vendor is interested in becoming a vendor that accepts American Express please send their contact information to Georgia Wells at firstname.lastname@example.org@calpoly.edu
P-Card Administration P-Card statements with all supporting receipts are due in the Accounts Payable office no later than the 15th of each month. Accounts Payable will begin communicating more actively with cardholders that submit their documentation late.
P-Card Administration In order to facilitate imaging P-Card statements and related documents we ask that you: 1. Tape down all receipts smaller than 8.5 x 11 onto an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper. 2. Statements and supporting receipts should be submitted with paperclips, rather than stapled.
P-Card Administration As a reminder the P-Card must not be used for any Hospitality expenses. Hospitality expenses are generally comprised of hosting related expenses such as food, beverages, and promotional items.
