375.0710 Animation. A small independent film production company hires a larger film production company to prepare and film some animation for a project being produced. The smaller company was billed for animation stand rental, art supplies, other supplies (film, etc.) and labor and fringe benefits (for personnel who actually operated their camera).
The charge for animation would be nontaxable as a charge for "qualified production services". Tax does not apply to charges for tangible personal property transferred in connection with the performance of qualified production services. 12/1/92.
