Massachusetts: Sales tax on wine?

ns538bmk | Jun 5, 2008 01:57 PM

I don't recall ever paying sales tax on wine I've purchased at a liquor store in Massachusetts (and I'm no stranger to buying wine). But we are holding the winning bid on some wine offered in the WGBH auction (our PBS affiliate in Boston), and they are charging us 5% sales tax. I find conflicting information on the Mass Dept of Revenue site. WGBH simply tells us wine is taxable in Massachusetts. Can anybody from Mass shed some light on this?
