195.0000 CONTAINERS AND LABELS—Regulation 1589
(a) IN GENERAL—NONRETURNABLE CONTAINERS
195.0311 Containers Sold to Commercial Packers. Tax does not apply to sales of nonreturnable containers without the contents to persons who engage in commercial packaging for others by placing those persons' products into the containers for subsequent sale. This has been the Board's long-standing interpretation of section 6364. The amendments to Regulations 1589 and 1630 that provide that tax does not apply to sales of nonreturnable containers when sold without the contents to persons who place food products for human consumption in the containers for subsequent sales were not intended to reverse prior administrative determinations or otherwise restrict the exemption. 3/5/97. (M99-1).
