Product Sales with Postal Stamps as payment

by Andre Pitchford
(Ocala, FL USA)

I have a prison pen pal website (www.ConvictedFemales.com). Female inmates purchase Profile Ads to post which viewers read and decide if they want to write the female inmate or not.


Problem: I allow female inmate to purchase the Pen pal Profile Ad prison check, money order, or postal stamps (for indigent inmates who do not have money)

Question(s):
1) Do I charge the inmates tax on postal stamp sales?

Andre,

My first thought is yes. You are selling ad space, and that is a taxable sale.

Hope that helps!

Kathy
