375.0735 Bid Prints. "Bid Prints" used exclusively to evaluate market potential are within the definition of qualified production services and tax does not apply to charges for them. However, if the bid print is subsequently used for exhibition or broadcast purposes, the exclusion from taxation is negated and the seller is liable for sales tax on the transaction. Sellers of prints which may be used as bid prints or as release prints may find it desirable to amend their contracts to provide for reimbursement of any tax which may subsequently be found to be due. 10/1/90; 5/29/96.
