315.0000 INSTALLING, REPAIRING, RECONDITIONING IN GENERAL—Regulation 1546
(b) EXCHANGES OF USED FOR RECONDITIONED PROPERTY
315.0400 Deposits—Reimbursement. Auto parts stores may use, in a proper case, that portion of the Regulation 1546 which allows tax to be measured, in the case of an exchange of a worn part for a reconditioned part, by the cash received. Where a "core deposit" is taken to insure that the worn part will be turned in after the reconditioned part replaces it in the car, tax reimbursement should be charged on the deposit to protect the retailer in case the worn part is not turned in and the deposit forfeited. In this case, the transaction is a straight cash sale. However, tax reimbursement on the deposit must be returned to the customer with the deposit, otherwise it constitutes excessive tax reimbursement under section 6901.5. 11/4/64; 9/29/89.
