Current through Register Vol. 45, No. 9, September 24, 2021

Section 12-36-2120(8) exempts from the measure of the tax the gross proceeds of the sale of newspapers.

In order to qualify as a newspaper the publication must meet at least the following requirements:

1. It must be commonly and ordinarily considered and accepted as a newspaper by the public it is intended to serve.
2. It must be published at stated short intervals--daily or weekly.
3. It must contain news of general interest and intelligence of current events.
4. It must be printed on newsprint paper.
5. It must not, when its successive issues are put together, constitute a book. Even though the publication may be devoted primarily to matters of specialized interest, such as mercantile, political, religious or sporting, if in addition it qualifies under all of the foregoing it is entitled to be classed as a newspaper.
6. Newspapers do not include magazines, periodicals, bulletins, and other publications.
