The services of transporting household goods or moving services of a mover company are free from sales taxes in New York City; they are tax exempt for packing, unpacking, loading and unloading. However, charging for the same by the mover company should not supposedly be together with the bill for the sale of property or services since in such case, all charges would be taxable. A charge for shipping included as a part of personal property transferred through sale would be subject to sales tax in totality. A charge for general storage which is not in connection with moving services of the company is also subject to sales tax. In case of movers being mere transporter of sale of property, their charges would be under sales tax application along with installation and assembly charges at their target destination.
Packing materials are at taxable at the time of their purchase and not taxable in case of their resale. In case of customer being a government entity, the mover is also not required to collect sales tax on sales of packing materials if required purchase order towards exemption is provided by the customer to the mover company.
Certain household belongings or items are uninstalled before their packing and moving or some items may require special crating or packing for fear of being damaged in transit. In most cases, the movers have requisite staff who perform such services as un-assembling, reassembling and installation. The movers may get these services done through third party also. The charges for the same services from the customers are not under sales tax jurisdiction in New York City. Reassembling to new location is also not subject to tax unless the property does not become the real part of the property of the customers such as pillows, pianos, exercise machines etc. Otherwise, in most cases, installation services such as certain appliances, hot tubs etc. remain tax free as these qualify for capital improvement rather than addition.
