What Are the Laws Regarding the Sale of Bullion Coins in Texas?

Texas laws regarding the sale of precious metal coins are relatively lax compared to some other states. Texas does not impose a sales tax on the sale of bullion coins provided that the sale originated from a Texas precious metal dealer, whether online or through the phone, and that the bullion coins were not shipped to a state that does impose a sales tax. 

Historically, in order to be exempt from sales tax, the bullion coins sale must have exceeded $1,000. For any bullion coins sold under that amount, sales tax was still applied. But in 2013, that law was amended, and today, gold, silver, and platinum bullion coins can be sold in any amount, free from sales tax. However, laws are always changing, so it’s important that you stay current on these laws before making a sale.
