425.0000 PRESCRIPTION MEDICINES—Regulation 1591
(b) SPECIFIC ITEMS CLASSIFIED.
425.0514.5 Medication Containers. Items used to insert medication into patients are generally regarded as appliances or devices under Regulation 1591(c) (2). Thus their sale is subject to sales tax. However, such items may qualify as "nonreturnable containers" if they are prefilled (e.g. with medication), disposable, and may only be used on one patient. If so, their sale is not taxable when meeting the requirements of Regulation 1589. 3/28/94.
