This is one of a series on how to handle items that affect the "basis" of tax.
Installation charges are often included in the basis of the tax calculation...in other words, they're often taxable. Installation charges include pretty much any on-site charges related to setting up a product.
They typically don't include charges that happen at the seller's facility. Those would typically be include in the normal selling price and therefore taxable in all cases. But installation charges might be taxable or might not, depending on the state.
