Based on law and facts, the partnership and the joint venture are separate and distinct persons for purposes of Sales Tax Law because they hold separate meetings, file separate returns for property and income taxes and have separate and distinct labor agreements. They are considered separate entities by the Internal Revenue Service and for purposes of Workmens' Compensation insurance premiums. They maintain separate accounting records and books, and use different accounting methods. 10/27/69.
