Q: Internet Sales Tax - Effective 01 July 2019 ebay claims that the exemption for coins was repealed and that the INDOR di

rective that sales tax may NOT be charged on shipping when USPS is used is no longer in effect. Also that US Postage for mailing is now a taxable sale. I can't find that the new application of sales tax repealed those three exemptions.

Indiana Code 6-2.5-5-47

Coins, bullion, and legal tender

(1) coins that are permitted investments by an individual retirement account or by an individually-directed account under 26 U.S.C. 408(m);

(2) bullion that would be a permitted investment by an individual retirement account or by an individually-directed account under 26 U.S.C. 408(m) if the bullion was in the physical possession of a trustee; or

(3) legal tender;

are exempt from the state gross retail tax.

A: If you are having trouble finding a law in Indiana that was changed effective July 1 your difficulty may be the result of the state not having enough time to change the code section affected. Call you local legislator in Indiana (not your Congressman) and ask them for help; they will probably point you to a different link that published the Laws as opposed to the statutes being amended by the Laws.
