340.0000 MAILING LISTS AND SERVICES—Regulation 1504

Annotation 340.0160

340.0160 Rental of Mailing Lists. By agreement, an out-of-state society appoints a company to act as a "list manager" for a mailing list. Under the contract, the duty of the list manager is to promote the rental of names and to bear all expenses for that promotion and sales effort. For compensation, the list manager retains 30% of the gross rental price.

Based on this information, the society is the lessor of the lists and the list manager merely acts as an agent on behalf of the society in managing the mailing list. Accordingly, the society is the retailer responsible for collecting California use tax from the lessee. 5/6/92.
