Charges for copy written solely for media (television, radio, newspaper, etc.) advertising messages or for more than one purpose, one of which is for media advertising messages, are not taxable. Such charges must be separately stated from taxable charges. Therefore, if the agency contracts to furnish the client with both the mechanical and the placement of the advertising, the agency's separately stated charge for writing the copy is excludable from the gross receipts of the sale of the mechanical. 3/27/87.
