§ 44-18.1-31. Bundled transactions.

(A) A member state shall adopt and utilize to determine tax treatment, the core definition for a "bundled transaction". See § 44-18-7.1(c).

(B) Member states are not restricted in their tax treatment of bundled transactions except as otherwise provided in the Agreement. Member states are not restricted in their ability to treat some bundled transactions differently from other bundled transactions.

(C) In the case of a bundled transaction that includes any of the following: telecommunication service, ancillary service, internet access, or audio or video programming service:

(1) If the price is attributable to products that are taxable and products that are nontaxable, the portion of the price attributable to the nontaxable products may be subject to tax unless the provider can identify by reasonable and verifiable standards such portion from its books and records that are kept in the regular course of business for other purposes, including, but not limited to, non-tax purposes.

(2) If the price is attributable to products that are subject to tax at different tax rates, the total price may be treated as attributable to the products subject to tax at the highest tax rate unless the provider can identify by reasonable and verifiable standards the portion of the price attributable to the products subject to tax at the lower rate from its books and records that are kept in the regular course of business for other purposes, including, but not limited to, non-tax purposes.
