Generally, yes. Most services that are rendered in New York State are subject to sales tax, with a few exceptions. Interior design would likely fall within the category of "professional services", which are taxable. However, it's always best to check with your local tax authority to be sure.

It depends on the services provided. If you are providing design services that include creating or altering a plan for the construction or renovation of a building or structure, then those services would be taxable. However, if you are providing design consultation services that do not include any type of construction plans, then those services would not be taxable. To determine whether a particular service is taxable, you should contact the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance.

Yes, interior design services are taxable in NY. The law stipulates that any service that is “primarily for decoration, beautification, comfort, or utility” is subject to sales tax. This would include interior decorating and design services.
There may be some exceptions for certain types of labor-intensive work (such as installing or repairing window treatments), but in general, most interior design services are considered taxable. If you have any questions about whether a specific service is taxable, you can contact the NYS Department of Taxation and Finance.

It depends on what kind of services you are providing. If you are an interior designer who charges for your time and expertise in designing a space, then those services would be taxable. However, if you are simply selling furniture, accessories, or other products that would be considered part of the interior design of a space, those sales would not be taxable.

The state of New York does not have a definitive answer to this question as there is no specific statute that addresses the issue. However, it is generally understood that services rendered by interior designers are subject to sales tax. This ruling was made by the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance in Advisory Opinion No. 2006-2, which states that charges for designing interiors for both residences and businesses are taxable. There may be some exceptions to this rule if the design service includes the purchase and installation of materials, in which case those charges may be considered exempt from sales tax. To be sure, it would be best to speak with an accountant or tax specialist in your area.
