295.0000 GROSS RECEIPTS
(g) SERVICE CHARGES GENERALLY
295.1690 Services that Are a Part of the Sale. "Services that are a part of the sale" include any the seller must perform in order to produce and sell the property, or for which the purchaser must pay as a condition of the purchase and/or functional use of the property, even where such services might not appear to directly relate to production or sale costs. Thus, charges described by a seller of catalogs as for preproduction research and consultation services and for postproduction merchandising consultation services are part of the taxable sales price of the catalogs, whether separately stated or not. The first "service" is a necessary prelude to catalog production; and the second is furnished only to catalog purchasers who are required to pay for the service when they purchase the catalogs, whether or not it is desired or used. 8/16/78.
