Sales and Use Tax Annotations
347.0000 MANUFACTURING EQUIPMENT—Regulation 1525.2
347.1000 Special Purpose Buildings. Components of a methanol plant, including the concrete pads (foundations), qualify as special purpose buildings and foundations under section 6377 as long as the components and foundations are used as an integral part of the manufacturing process. Therefore, the plant and concrete pads are tangible personal property for purposes of the partial exemption from sales and use taxes (6% for transactions in 1994 and 5% for transactions in 1995 and thereafter). Tanks and their pads which are merely used for warehousing purposes do not qualify for the exemption. 11/1/94.
