330.0000 LEASES OF TANGIBLE PERSONAL PROPERTY—IN GENERAL—Regulation 1660
(a) IN GENERAL
330.2176 Election to Report on Cost. Under Regulation 1660, when a person pays sales tax reimbursement to his vendor and leases that property in substantially the same form as acquired, he has made an irrevocable election to treat the lease as a nonsale. Accordingly, he cannot later, either by taking a tax paid purchase resold deduction or having the seller file a claim for refund, convert a nonsale to a sale. This is so notwithstanding the fact that he has collected use tax measured by rental receipts from the beginning of the lease period. 5/26/71.
