I have two tenants and they pay only rent. We own a 3 family home and the 2 top floors are rented for $750 each and that includes hot water, property and trash taxes and fees, and landscaping. They are both responsible for their utilities though.

Ive never heard of sales tax being added to rent. They aren't SELLING you anything lol. No they shouldn't add anything to your rent unless there are fees for late payment or something.

If you were told your rent will be $550 a month then that is what it will be. There shouldn't be anything else added to your rent. And there most def should not be sales tax!

I'm sure it's state-by-state, but rent is not typically a taxable "item". Usually taxes are applied to tangible goods and a couple kinds of services. Our rent includes heat, water and trash/sewer.
