No sales tax?

I'm wondering if this is possible, practical and/or even legal? Most of the work that I do, I charge my customers a set price for a project. So at the
end of the project I send them a bill for the agreed upon price and they send me a check.
In order to create that invoice (using accounting software - QP Pro 08) I enter a "non-itemized group" Item that includes line items for labor and all of the materials I use. So when I print the invoice, all that shows up is the description for the group item, the total price for that item and then the amount of sales tax. What I am wondering is, can I enter all of the materials for a project as non-taxable items and then when I submit my quarterly sales tax return, include all of the "project materials" as "use goods"? I'm not attempting to cheat the state their fair share, but I don't like the idea of the extra line on the invoice.

So basically you want to eliminate the "sales tax" line from the invoice you submit to your customers. Yes, that can be done.
I don't know why it's a deal though, as the customer shouldn't care, and in fact might need to know what was paid so as to not double up on that amount if they think they then owe a use tax themselves.
