(6) Export Packers and Forwarding Agents
325.1531 Forwarding Agent. A "forwarding agent" for purposes of the Sales and Use Tax Law is not required to be licensed by the Interstate Commerce Commission or anyone else in order to satisfy the requirements of section 6396. Regulation 1620, which in part interprets section 6396, does not refer to any licensing requirement. Rather, it simply requires that the person or firm be engaged in the business of preparing property for shipment or arranging for its shipment. 7/10/84.
