(a) IN GENERAL
120.0663 Transfer of Images by Electronic Means. A taxpayer prepares advertisement layouts and transfers the image of the advertisement by modem to its client, or the taxpayer posts the advertisement on the Internet.
Sales tax does not apply to the taxpayer's charge because the taxpayer does not make a sale of tangible personal property when information is transferred by electronic means. On the other hand, if the taxpayer provides the client with a hard copy of the advertising layout or transfers the layout to the client on a computer diskette, the charge is subject to sales tax. 3/12/96.
