Taxes on Websites in Texas? Advertising Taxes?

Am I supposed to charge sales tax in Texas for web design? What about advertising services as an online publisher of directories, banners, even managing a SEM program for a client …Ad Words etc. ?

thats a good question, especially since i’m in texas also. I normally dont charge taxes, but i just suck that up at the end of the year. this normally works better for me. i dont believe that charging taxes for banners is necessary.

Website creation is a taxed service in Texas.

Advertising/marketing services aren’t listed, and aren’t tangible property, so it doesn’t look like you have to collect sales tax on that.

Generating reports on the advertising, however, is data processing, and data processing is taxable.

Texas has some odd sales tax laws.

thank you …very helpful
