Textbooks Exempt in Utah University Bookstores

Posted by salestax on March 11, 2008

So, Utah is finally on board with exempting text books to students.  But, if you read this article closely, I’m still surprised by a few points brought up in this article:

1.  Only if students buy the books at college bookstores (no exemption if you pick them up at a retail bookstore).

2.  Only if your college receives a 501(c)(3) designation from the Federal Government.  I guess some private institutions will still have to tax their students. 

3.  There are only 17 other states that have exempt textbooks.  What is up with the US and education.  Can we make it any less affordable to get a post-secondary education.  We should all start sending our kids over seas for their education – much, much cheaper
