    What is the deal with ‘sales tax’ in the monthly rent? I’ve just read over the lease agreement signed by a new tenant placed in my property and the PM is charging the tenant an extra $17 sales tax on top of the rent. I guess it’s good that it’s being paid by the tenant and not me but I was wondering if anyone can clarify what this is as I’ve never seen it before. Thank you

    Each US State has it’s own individual sales tax added to everything (similar to our GST but added on after the purchase) so I guess they add it to rent also!
