385.1100 Loose-Leaf Services. Loose-leaf services or reports concerning taxes, business, and other subjects are issued to a subscriber initially in the form of a complete volume or volumes. Supplements containing current information on the subject are then regularly issued to the subscriber at average intervals of less than three months. Replacement volumes containing updated material are sometimes issued annually with the renewal of a subscription. The subscriber pays a lump-sum price for both the volume and the supplements.
On these facts, the supplements are exempt periodicals but the initial volumes and the replacement volumes are not. An allocation of the lump-sum price between the volumes and the supplements may properly be based upon the amount which the publisher charges to replace a lost or destroyed volume. 8/15/68.
