(e) RETAIL SALE OR SALE FOR RESALE—DELIVERY BY OWNER, FORMER OWNER, FACTOR OR AGENT
495.0890 Interstate Delivery. Effective January 1, 1993, under the second paragraph of section 6007, a seller engaged in business in California owes sales tax, or must collect use tax, when it makes a wholesale sale of property and makes a delivery of that property to a California consumer pursuant to a retail sale made by a person not engaged in business in California. The California wholesaler is redefined to be the retailer under section 6007 even if he/she, in turn, purchases the property from another supplier who actually delivers, on the wholesaler's behalf, the property to the California consumer. The supplier would be liable for tax under section 6007 only if neither the retailer nor the wholesaler were engaged in business in California. 11/12/92.
