515.0001.200 Architectural Animations. A taxpayer uses a computer to generate videotapes of proposed architectural projects. The computer model shows a pedestrian or passing automobile view of the project. After finishing the computer modeling, videotapes are delivered to the client. The work is not regarded as the rendering of a service because the true object of the contract is the videotape. However, the videotape is regarded as a qualified motion picture and tax does not apply to the transfer of the original videotape. Tax does apply to copies of the videotape. 10/6/94.
