(a) IN GENERAL
570.0200 Loans to Out-of-State Customers. A manufacturer of gas lasers loans them from stock and delivers them outside this state to out-of-state buyers who have contracted to buy other lasers which are not ready for delivery. When the manufacturer sends the laser that the customer ordered, the loaned laser is in all cases returned to the California manufacturer, who then checks, calibrates, and returns it to stock to be sold as new equipment. Sometimes the returned laser will be loaned again under like circumstances. The manufacturer will not be considered to be making a taxable use of the loaned laser by virtue of the use of the out-of-state customer. 2/2/65.
