Ruling 89-263


The initial finish out work or fit out work provided to the two floors that have never been finished or occupied is not subject to sales and use tax because it is considered to be new construction pursuant to section 12-407(2)(i)(I) of the Connecticut General Statutes, as amended by Public Act No. 89-251. However, if any use, e.g., storage (other than building materials) is made of the unfinished portion of the building prior to the initial fit out work being performed, then the finish out work would be taxable as a renovation to the building.
