Sales and Use Tax Annotations
(e) RETAIL SALE OR SALE FOR RESALE—DELIVERY BY OWNER, FORMER OWNER, FACTOR OR AGENT
495.0800 Changed Intention After Purchase. A firm buys a machine for specific use in the event a certain contract is obtained and pays all sales or use taxes thereon.
Upon failure to obtain the contract and without any use being made of the machine, it is resold by the purchaser. Tax refund is in order as resale occurred prior to any use of the machine.
Sales tax applies, however, to the resale of the machine unless it was resold in interstate commerce and delivery effected in a manner qualifying it for exemption under Regulation 1620. 8/12/54.
