Is labor taxable?
- If tangible personal property is not transferred, labor is not taxable.

Whether labor is subject to sales tax depends upon the circumstances under which the labor is performed:
With regard to installation charges, labor charges that are contracted for separately from the selling price of the tangible personal property are not taxable. Labor charges that are a part of the selling price are taxable. See 86 Ill. Adm. Code 130.450.
