(a) In General

120.0650 Trade-In of Software. A retailer offers a promotional discount/trade-in whereby the customer was forced to give up his current software in order to obtain the company's so-called promotional discount. An agreed value between buyer and seller was reached as to the value of the traded in software.

When a retailer accepts a trade-in, the retailer must include in the measure of tax the amount agreed upon between the retailer and the buyer as the allowance for the merchandise traded in. If there is a trade-in and also a discount, the contract between the seller and the buyer must make it clear that the parties contract for both a trade-in allowance and for a discount. 12/14/92.
