I thought they went away from the non/profit because members were teaching classes for profit?

Have I just never noticed it before, or are they now charging sales tax on the membership? Interesting..
Oklahoma Tax Commission Sales Tax Division audited OKCGC for unrelated business income or unpaid sales tax of products sold (Is what I was told)
When OKCGC buys Targets and other consumables and does not pay sales tax on items purchased. Oklahoma Tax Commission believes that they should be collection sales tax on products sold or used on range.
OKCGC has added the 4.5% state sales tax (No Local or County Tax) on membership dues. (Product that we are purchasing)

Also the Oklahoma Tax Commission on Form 511 has a check box if you have purchased anything on line and have not paid the sales tax.

Aren't "dues" considered the same thing as "labor" or "services"? Those are non taxable items because they are not a tangible item so to speak.
Labor is not tangible nor can the State say they own your labor, yet somehow we ended up with the 16th amendment. But that's for another discussion.

I don't know what the exemptions are, but it appears that club memberships are taxable.

I will write a letter and include with my OKC due.
It will state;
It was found garage sales will not be subject to sales tax.
The state wanted to tax value of items sold, not collections.
Thus, due to the great value of items being sold at such discounts, no sales tax.
My membership dues are a great value to me and at such a discount, no sales tax.
Thank you,
Spencer
