This clarifies this issue and puts to bed the accusations that Greater Pitt was "breaking a law" by collecting sales tax on an out of State FFL transfer. I felt I needed to start a new thread to bring this evidence to light and exonerate Tex and the club.

Please find below a disucssion with the PA State Department of Revenue concerning this issue. As you can see I asked for further from the original response to be certain they understood the question.

Sir:

I consulted with our Office of Chief Counsel, sales tax attorneys, and yes, the transfer is subject to sales/use tax.

The firearm was purchased and paid for out of State.
The Pennsylvania FFL was simply doing the transfer.

Sir:

Did you pay the dealer while you were out of State OR did you pay the dealer in Pittsburgh? Your first question led me to believe that money exchanged hands in PA. If you would clarify that for me, then I will better know how to answer your question.

Let me just clarify this. The firearm was purchased out of State. The FFL dealer in PA is simply transferring the firearm ownership,not completeing a pruchase tansaction. Is the FFL dealer in PA still obliged to collect sales tax?

Richard,

Absolutely. The firearm was delivered to a location within the Commonwealth and actually you should have been charged 7% as the purchase took place in Allegheny County.
