Ruling 89-196


This Ruling has been obsoleted by AN 94(3)

When an architect obtains a building permit from a municipality on behalf of a client, the architect is acting in an agency capacity for his client. The fee paid to the municipality for such permit is not subject to the sales and use tax as long as the architect separately states this item on his bill to his client.
