Be advised that as of July 15, 2006, all sales of clothing and accessories that are made of fur on the hide, or pelt of an animal, are subject to the Fur Clothing Gross Receipts Tax. This includes clothing and accessories not entirely made of fur where the fur is the component of chief value (e.g. a cloth coat with a mink collar and cuffs where the value of the mink exceeds the value of the cloth material).
This tax is imposed at the rate of 6% on all gross receipts from sales completed at your location or by delivery to your customer on or after July 15, 2006 of fur clothing and accessories, as described above.
Information about registration for this new Fur Clothing Gross Receipts Tax, filing tax returns and remitting the tax will be provided shortly. The first returns will be due in October, 2006.
