195.0000 CONTAINERS AND LABELS—Regulation 1589
(a) IN GENERAL—NONRETURNABLE CONTAINERS
195.0115 Bubble Pack, Styrofoam Pellets, and Styrofoam Sponges. Bubble pack, styrofoam pellets, and formed in place styrofoam sponges are packing materials. If sold to packers and shippers who use them to protect goods during shipment, tax applies to the sale, because packers and shippers are consumers of packing materials. If sold to persons who are also the sellers of the property shipped, they may be purchased for resale because the materials become part of nonreturnable containers which are resold with the property shipped. 8/23/88.
