Occasional Sale Exemption

To avoid requiring every person who happened to sell an item of tangible personal property during the year to collect or pay sales tax, most states offer an exemption from sales tax for occasional, casual, or isolated sales. This is the reason you can have a garage sale every spring and not collect sales tax. In most cases, eligibility for the exemption is based on the seller not having more than a specified number or dollar amount of sales during the year.
