• Directive 00-7: Sales of Lifts installed in Motor Vehicles

    General Laws chapter 64H, section 6(u), provides an exemption for the "sale of a motor vehicle purchased by and for the use of a person who has suffered loss, or permanent loss of use of, both legs or both arms or one leg and one arm." If a person with a disability described in that section purchases a lift-equipped vehicle, the purchase is exempt from the sales tax.
  • Letter Ruling 98-18: Surgically Implanted Orthopedic Devices

Therefore, we determine that the sale of bone plates, nails and external fixators qualify for exemption.
