The New Mexico Department of Taxation and Revenue recently ruled that commissions or fees received from selling cellular service agreements are taxable.

The taxpayer sold cellular goods and services on behalf of a large cellular service provider. The taxpayer received income from the sale of goods as well as commissions for service agreements acquired on behalf of the cellular service provider. The taxpayer paid tax on the amount received from the sales of goods but did not pay tax on the commissions received from the service agreement sales.

New Mexico taxes the total amount of money received from selling tangible property or services. The total amount of money received includes commissions or fees received from selling services. As a result, the taxpayer was required to pay tax on the commissions received from the service agreement sales.
