Yep that's why they call it goods & services tax.

Dude works out of his parents' home and he didn't take cash?
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

Fer real.  In Philly, people hardly ever take anything but cash.  No way that dude wants to claim every dime.  Nobody is that honest.

but he gave a receipt so cash or not he's charging tax. Here they say if you pay cash and I don't need to give you a receipt no tax. otherwise there is a paper trail that can lead CRA back to them for "Un-Claimed" taxable income.

Ah, but this is not Canada.  There is no tax on services in PA.  The PO said labor.  Essentially, the machinist is compensating for his own income tax.  You can only tax for labor on the repair of something.

He doesn't have my cycle.
I just found this kid and he has a soda blasting cabinet besides he does good quality machine work.I had him do 10 mins. of soda blasting and he charged me "the shop minimum" of $10+ .60 tax & I gave him a check.He did that same thing for me twice.
I just moved here and can't seem to find a powersports/MC machine shop and another forum member told me about him so I brought him 2 little cylinders & an XR200 crank to rebuild + I was thinking about bringing/sending more work his way.
The last time I went there his Brindle Collie(nice dog but needs more training/care)bit my left hand and he just ignored that even when I showed him my bleeding hand.
I want to find another local motorcycle 'friendly' machinist at this point..
I hate to have to ship the parts away if I can find a local machine dude who's decent.

6% is state sales tax and +2% for Philly.  I can only speak for Philly, as that's where I lived for 12 years and I own a house there.  Not sure he should've taxed you for the blasting, but rebuilding a crank is taxable as that's a repair.  If you have him custom fab a part, that is not taxable.  The same goes if he machines parts that you intend on reselling- no sales tax.

I did tell him I planned to sell the pr. of CB350K4 sidecovers he blasted;he's a 21 yr.old living under his Ma & Dad's roof so he may not be up w/ what's right,I might have to mention it but some of his other prices seemed reasonable..
