RE  09007870 Welding Rods

Dear **************:

Thank you for your e-mail about sales tax. You wish to know if a contractor
performing a separated contract for the new construction of realty can give 
a resale certificate for the welding rods used to construct a steel building.

You wish to know if a contractor performing a separated contract for the new 
construction of realty can give a resale certificate for the welding rods used 
to construct a steel building.

Response:  Under a separated contract, welding rods that melt during the 
welding process to become part of the joint are incorporated into realty.  
Therefore, a contractor performing a separated contract for the new 
construction of realty can give a resale certificate for them.

I hope this information answers your question.  A complete set of rules, the 
entire text of the Tax Code and other valuable information are available on our 
Web site at www.window.state.tx.us.
