315.0000 INSTALLING, REPAIRING, RECONDITIONING IN GENERAL—Regulation 1546
(b) EXCHANGES OF USED FOR RECONDITIONED PROPERTY
315.0380 Deposits. If the original transaction is clearly understood and designated to be an exchange, the tax will not apply to the amount of deposit placed with the retailer to insure delivery to him of the worn part, in the event that the customer does deliver the worn part to the retailer and receives a refund of the deposit. The amount of the deposit should, of course, be entered separately in the retailer's books as a deposit.
In the event that the customer does not deliver the worn part to the retailer pursuant to the exchange agreement, the transaction will be regarded as a straight sale of the reconditioned part.
In this event the retention of the deposit by the retailer will be regarded as an appropriation of the amount thereof to the payment of the retail sales price of the part, which will be regarded as the full amount charged by the retailer, including the amount originally received as a deposit. The tax will apply, in this case, to the full retail sales price. 1/19/50.
