490.0000 RETURNS, DEFECTS AND REPLACEMENTS—Regulation 1655
(a) RETURNED MERCHANDISE
(2) "Full Sale Price"
490.0340 Transportation Charges. In order for a lumber retailer to claim a returned merchandise deduction, he must refund the "full sale price." Since transportation charges to the buyer by carrier are no longer includable in the measure of tax irrespective of where title passes, they need not be refunded in order to claim the deduction. Thus, "full sale price" for purposes of the returned merchandise deduction should be construed to include only amounts required to be included in the measure of tax under sections 6011 and 6012. 11/30/64.
