If you’ve purchased a gift card (whether in-store or online) from a retailer, restaurant, travel entity, or elsewhere, you may have wrongly been charged sales tax on your purchase. Of the states that charge sales tax, the majority have laws or regulations on the books stating that sales tax should not be charged on the purchase of a gift card, and, rather, should be deducted from the gift card balance when the gift recipient uses the card.
When businesses charge sales tax to you on the purchase of a gift card, they might also deduct the sales tax from the gift card when your gift recipient uses the card. This would amount to improperly charging sales tax twice on the same purchase.
