220.0000 "ENGAGED IN BUSINESS"
220.0178 Permits. Company A and Company B form a partnership, Company C, for the purpose of manufacturing certain building components. C is not located in California, and A holds a California seller's permit. A is a selling agent for C. As long as A is C's selling agent, C is a retailer engaged in business in this state and must register with the Board. C is responsible for collecting use tax on retail sales in California and remitting the tax to the state. If, however, C is selling the property to A and A is reselling it on its own behalf, C would not be represented in this state and would not be required to register with the Board. A would be making sales and would be responsible for the payment of sales tax on the gross receipts from retail sales in this state. 3/31/94.
