Interpretation Request relating to nasal strips

On November 10, 2016, the Compliance Review and Interpretations Committee (CRIC) voted to accept the Interpretation Request submitted by Mr. Steve Claflin from Sovos Compliance and issue a recommended interpretive opinion on the question of whether nasal strips are “prosthetic devices” as defined in the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement (SSUTA)?  If the nasal strips are not “prosthetic devices” are they “not defined” under the SSUTA?

The Compliance Review and Interpretations Committee may hold a hearing on this request any time after the 60-day public comment period which expires on January 9, 2017.  The hearing will take place at CRIC’s regularly scheduled meeting on January 19, 2017 at 10 am central. A reminder notice will be sent out at least 10-days prior to the hearing.

Please email any public comments on this interpretation request to craig.johnson@sstgb.org, no later than Monday, January 9, 2017. Any public comments received will be posted to the Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board’s website.

If you have any questions concerning this, please feel free to contact me.
