Are sales of drugs subject to sales tax?

Drugs that are purchased under a prescription are exempt from sales and use tax.  In addition to standard prescription drugs, this also includes over-the-counter drugs for human use (it must include a label identifying it as a drug) that are purchased pursuant to a prescription.  Over-the-counter drugs purchased without a prescription are subject to sales tax.  See Important Notice 07-18 for more information.
