I am wondering if when I have photos printed at a photo lab or a poster printed at a printer if I need to pay sales tax? I would think there is some type of resale certificate since I will be collecting the sales tax on the final sale to my client. I am new to this and located in NJ. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Ask your accountant. Last thing you want is to be dinged by IRS because you collected taxes based off some random person online.

Generally, you don't pay a sales tax on any item that you resell and collect sales tax on yourself. New Jersey may have special rules that are different from other states, so it is best to ask a person knowledgeable about the state you operate in.

Here is a link to the resale exemption form for NJ. Check it closely, I don't know if it is up to date or the form you need, but at least it should give you an idea how this works.

Edit: If the lab is in another state, you will need the other state's form that is similar to this New Jersey Non Resident Resale Sales Tax Exemption Form (external link)
