Lawn Vendor Tax

Today TaxMama® hears from Don with this intriguing question. “My homeowner’s association had a lawn vendor that didn’t charge sales tax for several years. He charged us all at once. Now that the payment is made, what is the correct account to which to charge the payment?”

 Hi Don,  

Hmm, I am not sure that I understand the question. What is a lawn vendor?

Does he sell sod to lay down on the dirt? Or is he your gardener?

What do you normally charge his expenses to – landscaping or gardening? The sales tax goes into the same category as his normal expenses. It should have been part of his routine bill. 

Does this make any sense?
