Sales and Use Tax Annotations
(a) IN GENERAL—DEFINITION
495.0376 A Promise Is Consideration for Lease of Equipment. The customer, pursuant to an agreement, promises to purchase a minimum of 50 test packs per day for 180 days at a stated price per test pack. In return, the customer is entitled, among other things, to possession and use of an automatic clerical analyzer and computer. Under such circumstances, a lease of the equipment is clearly in evidence since consideration in the form of the customer's promise to purchase a certain quantity of the test pack is given in return for possession and use of the equipment. A "loan for use" is not in evidence, since the lessor realizes "reward" in the form of the promise to purchase and actual purchases by the customer of the test packs. 11/1/85.
