Pennsylvania DOR Updates Notice of Taxable and Exempt Property

The Pennsylvania Department of Revenue has issued an update to its Notice of Taxable and Exempt Property. The Commonwealth is required to periodically update this list which addresses different categories of property and provides taxability on an item-by-item basis. The Notice is also incorporated into the Retailer’s Information Guide (REV-717) published by the Department.

The updated Notice provides for tax treatment of new items and/or clarification or changes from prior versions. This year’s version includes the addition of guidance on non-fungible tokens (“NFTs”) which are taxable in Pennsylvania. The changes and clarifications in the notice address treatment of CBD that is vaped, flea-related pet supplies, residential fuel, and specified farming supplies.

The state’s current Retailer’s Information Guide can be accessed here.
