Ruling 89-10, Testing
Your letter indicates that the District will be conducting a cholesterol screening program that will check the cholesterol level of the persons tested. A nominal charge will be imposed to cover the cost of materials used in the testing and labor cost of the professional nurses in attendance when the testing is done.
It is the position of the Department that the charge made for testing is a charge for professional or personal services not described in Conn. Gen. Stat. §12-407(2) and that, accordingly, the charge is not subject to sales and use taxes. It is so ruled.
