    Good Video! Note on Sales Tax: No tax for items you purchase for resale. (steel, paint, hardware used on product, etc)
    End user pays the tax. “Used in Manufacturing” may be a “grey” area but I use this to not pay tax on anything used “directly” in manufacturing. (drill bits, end mills, machines, etc) All other items are taxable. Have never been audited by the State of Ohio on what I do and don’t pay tax on.

    Same for the other direction, in which you sell a product and charge tax on it and collect taxes for the State. Be careful here as the State wants their tax income. MUST have a Tax Exemption Certificate for everyone you sell to that does not pay taxes!!!
