Do I have to payt City/Local/County Sales Tax in addition to the state tax?

Michigan has no city, local, or county sales tax.

What Sales tax Rate Will I have to charge for Michigan Taxable Sales?

The state sales tax rate is 6%.

The most common businesses that are required to get a seller's permit are retailers - Retailers make sales to the end consumer.

Sales tax of 6% on their retail sales must be remitted to the State of Michigan.

In addition, retailers must get a seller's permit to collect tax from their customers and remit the sales tax to the State of Michigan.

Wholesalers are the second most common business that are required to get a seller's permit

in most states, but Michigan does not require them to get one.

Wholesalers sell to other wholesalers or retailers and not to the final consumer.

The price at which the seller sells a product does not determine if the seller is a wholesaler. The determination is based on whom the products are sold to by the seller.

Wholesalers buy for resale at wholesale.

They are not making retail sales; therefore registration for sales tax is not required. Wholesalers claiming an exemption should provide a written statement that they are purchasing for "resale at wholesale".

However, contractors such as construction general contractors do not need a seller's permit because they are considered the end consumer of the parts and materials for construction

- A sales tax license is not required for contractors or subcontractors, since they are the final consumers of the materials they affix to real property so they need to pay tax when buying the materials. 

Anyone who is directly engaged in the activity of constructing, altering, repairing, or improving real estate for others is liable for the sales tax on the inventory value of the materials affixed to the property. However, contractors can charge the taxes to the clients buy charging a higher price for the construction projects.

Note that businesses, who sell tangible personal property in addition to providing labor or a service, are required to obtain a seller's permit / sales tax license. For example, a plumber is required to obtain a seller's permit if instead of just installing plumbing, he also sells plumbing materials.

Any property which goes with the customer in connection with the repair or service is considered a sale at retail and subject to sales tax.
