Breaking Down Bullion Sales Tax in Texas

Texas eliminated the sales tax on sales or purchases of gold, silver, and platinum bullion and numismatic coins starting with October 2013, making investing in precious metals economically feasible. Previously, the state charged a 6.25% sales tax on purchases of any gold, silver, or platinum bullion or numismatic coins under $1000. The tax exemption provides a great opportunity for small-time investors to invest in precious metals and also help more precious metal dealers to enter and stay in Texas.
