Texas – Sunscreen Publications Under Revision

SALT Report 1842 – The Texas Comptroller’s office is currently updating two sales and use tax publications due to the changes in the taxability of sunscreen and sunscreen products.  Because sunscreen is now required by the FDA to be labeled with a drug facts panel, it now qualifies for the sales and use tax exemption provided in Tax Code Section 151.313 (a)(3).

The following publications will be updated to reflect the change in taxability:

Publication 94-155 – Sales Tax Exemptions for Over-the-Counter Drugs and Medicines, and

Publication 96-280 – Grocery and Convenience Stores: Taxable and Nontaxable Sales
