Fur Clothing Retail Gross Receipts Tax & Use Tax Overview
P.L. 2006, C. 41, imposes a gross receipts tax, payable by retailers, on the retail sale of fur clothing in New Jersey. “Fur clothing” means an item that is exempt from sales and use tax as clothing, is made of fur on the hide or pelt of an animal, and has fur as the chief component of its value. The law also imposes a fur clothing use tax. The retail purchaser is liable for fur clothing use tax on fur clothing purchased for delivery or use in New Jersey from a seller who did not pay the fur clothing retail gross receipts tax.
The rate is 6% on the seller’s gross receipts from the retail sales of fur clothing. The use tax rate is 6% on the retail price of fur clothing on which the seller did not pay gross receipts tax.
