Taxes for Professional Services as a Legal Professional

I have posted some notes on this subject, and today I am providing a summary.

Legal services including notary services, are not being taxed. This means that, for now, whenever a legal service is paid for, no tax would be added.

On the other hand, any service delivered by a lawyer or law firm which is not tied to the license as such, IS taxable at the rate of 4% until March of 2016 when the rate increases.  An example of this would be filing documents at the property tax agency.  Such a task is not limited to lawyers and could be performed by any individual trained on the subject.  This would be a taxable service.

Now, a notary performing a closing is clearly a legal service and is not taxable.

Yours,
