190.0000 CONSTRUCTION CONTRACTORS—Regulation 1521
(a) IN GENERAL—ACTIVITIES CONSTITUTING CONTRACTING OR MAKING OF IMPROVEMENTS
190.0560 Outdoor Advertising Signs. A large outdoor advertising sign erected upon land is a structure, and the contractor is the consumer of the materials used in the sign. Signs attached to buildings are considered fixtures, becoming real property upon being affixed. Since the tax applies to the sale of "materials" to the contractor and to the retail selling price of "fixtures," in neither case should an exemption certificate be accepted from the purchaser of the signs. 11/7/64.
