One further issue which I forgot to include.

Would the Use Tax apply to used equipment we purchased at auction (at an in-state University, upon which no sales tax was charged)? Complicating this (at least to me) is that the one or two pieces of equipment we wanted were part of several palettes of used stuff, much of which was junk, not fit to use, or which we have absolutely no use for.

Is used stuff subject, and do we actually have to USE the stuff for it to be taxed?

Thanks again!
