We didn’t pay tax on the advertised price of $1,500–but maybe our videographer already included the tax in this price quote??  The DJ didn’t charge tax, either.

Our videographer didn’t charge us tax (he said it was included in the price).  Our photographer, however, charged us tax on top of our package price.  I  believe it varies and you usually need to ask up front.

Anyone who does business in the state of California is required to pay state taxes, which are then passed on to you as a sales tax for their service rendered.

If for some reason someone isn’t charging tax, it just means that this is probably included in the price.

One way to get around this is to just pay cash.  This is what we did on as much as we could since state taxes are almost 10%.

Honestly, if you haven’t paid tax on anything, then you are very lucky as they should have been charging you tax.  Good luck though.  Most will waive the tax if you pay cash.

Oddly I paid taxes on everything but the video.
