Normally, when a bookseller buys books or anything he will put in his
inventory to sell, he is exempt from paying a sales tax since when he sells
the book tax will be charged at that time. If the seller were to be charged
tax also, then the book would be taxed twice. However, if the seller bought
the book for his own use, then he must pay the sales tax on that purchase.
Sorry for leaving you in the dark. And thanks for continuing to probe. Please
keep in touch.
