Alice, that's an excellent approach.

Another good one is to say that the price is $ X plus the Governor's 
sales tax.

I'm with Kathi, that if you as vendor don't collect and remit sales tax, 
YOU are the one responsible to pay it, possibly with penalties.

At the Cain Park art fair in Cleveland one year a woman came up with a very small purchase. "Is there tax" she asked as she handed me a ten dollar bill. I told her yes. She then said, "good answer. I'm from the Ohio Department of Revenue". If you don't charge it, they assume you won't pay it.
