435.0000 PRODUCING, FABRICATING AND PROCESSING PROPERTY FURNISHED BY CONSUMERS—GENERAL RULES—Regulation 1526
(c) MISCELLANEOUS OPERATIONS
435.1460 Screening and Separating of Rock. When materials furnished by the customer are separated according to size, e.g., rock, gravel, whether by screening, hand sorting or otherwise, this operation alone does not amount to a taxable fabricating or processing.
On the other hand, the crushing of rock or mixing of it with other ingredients is considered taxable processing. If there is such processing involved, the total charge therefor would be taxable unless some specific portion of the material is only sorted or separated and the charge for such sorting and separating can be separated from the charge for taxable processing. Only in that case would the charge for sorting and separating be excluded from the measure of the tax. 11/14/66.
