I am using a template for a consulting services contract. The template contains the following clause:
(c) Taxes. Company shall not be responsible for federal, state and local taxes derived from the Contractor's net income or for the withholding and/or payment of any federal, state and local income and other payroll taxes, workers' compensation, disability benefits or other legal requirements applicable to Contractor.
$x per hour. I invoice items at
$x per hour and apply federal & state sales tax rates to each item on the invoice.
Does the above clause apply to sales tax (and contradict my invoicing method)? If so, is
Excluding sales tax, company shall not be responsible for federal, state and local taxes... an acceptable edit?
