Purchases of items costing more than $100 are therefore purchased for immediate resale to the U.S. Government and are nontaxable sales for resale followed by exempt sales to the United States. Purchases of items costing less than $100 are not for resale and the gross receipts of the retailer are subject to sales tax. 10/19/84.
