100.0000 ADVERTISING AGENCIES, COMMERCIAL ARTISTS AND DESIGNERS—Regulation 1540
(d) PROPERTY TRANSFERRED OR USED
100.0320 Copy Writing Used in Media Advertising. If an agency only sells a mechanical to a client and does not contract to furnish the media advertising, the taxable gross receipts of the sale of the mechanical include the charge for the copy writing. In such cases, the agency's charge is for "copy written solely for use as a part of tangible personal property as to which the agency is acting as a seller." (Regulation 1540(b)(4)(E).) The client's furnishing the mechanical to the media does not make the charge for the copy nontaxable. 3/27/87.
