Peter do you ask your clients about any non-internet services or products they purchase during the year on which they have not paid sales tax? Some jurisdictions have taxes on services - so would you ask about the kid who shovels someone's snow or mowers someone's lawn? What about garage sales? Some how I think not. Tax prepare's need to ask about local taxes, whether it is city, county or state. Paid preparers can't just ignore taxing agencies, and hope that their clients won't be caught. If you choose to lie to your tax preparer that is your option, but your tax preparer can also choose not to keep you as a client. Locally, a resident can hold 2 garage sales a year and not be responsible for collecting sales tax or obtain a license. The enforce is that neighbors get annoyed with too many garage sales and report the offender to the city.
