190.0000 CONSTRUCTION CONTRACTORS—Regulation 1521
(a) IN GENERAL—ACTIVITIES CONSTITUTING CONTRACTING OR MAKING OF IMPROVEMENTS
190.0208 Exemption and Resale Certificates. Construction contractors are sellers of fixtures and may purchase fixtures for resale regardless of whether the contractor intends to install the fixtures or to resell them to another contractor for installation by the other contractor.
Construction contractors are consumers of construction materials which they furnish and install. Contractors may issue resale certificates when purchasing materials only when they will actually resell a significant portion of them and at the time of purchase they do not know which items will be consumed and which will be resold.
Sales of construction materials intended to be used on out-of-state construction projects may be purchased under a timely exemption certificate pursuant to section 6386 by a holder of a seller's permit. A resale certificate should not be issued in this situation because the materials will not actually be resold. 7/5/94.
