A: In Mississippi, sales tax is generally applied to the sale of tangible personal property and certain specified services. Accounting services, including tax preparation, do not fall under the category of services subject to sales tax in the state.

When you seek accounting services or tax preparation help, you won’t be charged sales tax on these services. This makes it a bit easier to budget for these necessary expenses without worrying about additional tax costs.

If you have any further questions about tax laws or need specific guidance, it’s always a good idea to consult directly with a tax professional or refer to the Mississippi Department of Revenue’s official resources. This can ensure you have the most accurate and current information for your situation.
