Sizing of rugs or carpets, assuming that such operation consists of the application of a starch or glutinous material and does not involve the cutting of a rug or carpet to alter its dimensions, is likewise a service except where the work is performed on a new rug or carpet, in which case the charge is taxable and materials used are purchased for resale. In the latter instance, if materials have been purchased tax-paid, a deduction thereof may be taken on the tax return. 5/24/54.
