What is Excise tax?

An excise tax refers to an indirect tax imposed while selling a particular product. Here indirect word refers to the tax which is not paid by an individual consumer directly. Instead, the tax is imposed by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on the producer or merchant, who passes the tax onto the consumer by adding it in the price of the product.

It is an inland tax on the sale, or production for sale of specific products or a tax on a commodity produced for sale, or sold, within a country or licenses for particular activities. Excises differ from customs duties, which are taxes on importation. Excises are usually imposed as well as another indirect tax like sales tax or value added tax (VAT). Excise tax registration is performed through One Click Business Solutions.
