    I guess I'd call that a 'Yes".

    I never charge for airfills to the two places I know. Free air fills for life...I guess it depends on your LDS. Me and my wife even have a free access to the pool, we just call them for availability and do our practice dive if they are not using it. I always like to play around with my equipment on my free time if I can't travel.

    What the "Eyes" see, the "Ears" hear, the "Mind" believes.

    In the water everything looks 33% larger. So, if it happen you see a 10 footer Tiger Shark. Don't worry it's only a guppy...

    Sales tax varies by State. In Oregon, NO, they should absolutely NOT charge you sales tax on Airfills..... Or anything for that matter. This screws up OR, but that's another tale.

    In CO we get charged sales tax, but there are exemptions. Food for home consumption is one example.

    So if you go to Wendy's, you get charged sales tax. If you buy 1000lbs of burger and tell them you are taking it home, no sales tax. Perfectly logical!

    I thought TX charges sales tax on most goods but not services. In the past I saw no sales tax on airfills. I think the recent charge was an error by a new employee. But I am surprised to see 3/4 "yes" responses.

    Actually, most services are taxable, here is the list straight from the state comptroller. I think it would fall under Taxable Labor. Of course, air is a physical product as well. I see no basis to say that air fills are not taxable. I'm surprised Larry hasn't piped up.

    Of course, it's a poll to see what is actually being done in practice, and not just about Texas. I'm not surprised to see variation within the state and would expect it between the states.
