325.0000 INTERSTATE AND FOREIGN COMMERCE—Regulation 1620
(a) IN GENERAL—SHIPMENTS INTO CALIFORNIA FROM POINTS OUTSIDE STATE
325.0011.450 Delivery from In-State Warehouse. Where the retailer ships the property sold from out of state to its warehouse located in California for assembly or consolidation of the property sold, and that warehouse location is the point from which the shipment is made to the customer, sales tax is the applicable tax. The local portion of the sales tax is allocated in accordance with Regulation 1802, sections (a) or (b)(5). Sales tax is applicable because the sale was completed in California by the retailer's shipment to the customer from a California location, and there was also participation by a place of business of the retailer, specifically its warehouse, in completing the delivery. The place of sale as defined in section 6010.5 is not the retailer's out-of-state location if the retailer does not complete its obligation with respect to delivery without first sending the property to its California warehouse. 8/11/89.
