Vermont Use Tax: What is Taxable?

Because Vermont sales tax and use tax work together, it is important to know when sales tax should be applied.

Some transactions subject to tax are:

  • Purchase of tangible personal property
  • Internet purchases
  • Digital downloads and prewritten software
  • Delivery charges, even if stated separately on invoice.

Note: Use tax is only due when sales tax would normally be due, but there is a difference between the Vermont rate and the amount actually paid. Therefore, there is no use tax due on purchases that are excluded from sales tax such as food and medical supplies.
