  • § 9708. Restrictions on advertising

    (a) No person required to collect any tax imposed by this chapter shall advertise or hold out to any person or to the public in general, in any manner, directly or indirectly, that the tax is not considered as an element in the price or amusement charge payable by customer, or that he or she will pay the tax, that the tax will not be separately charged and stated to the customer or that the tax will be refunded to the customer.

    (b) Upon written application duly made and proof duly presented to the satisfaction of the Commissioner showing that in his or her particular business it would be impractical for the vendor to separately charge the tax to the customer, the Commissioner may waive the application of the requirement herein as to such vendor.

    (c) Whenever reference is made in placards or advertisements or in any other publications to any tax imposed by this chapter, the reference shall be in substantially the following form: "sales and use tax"; except that in any bill, receipt, statement or other evidence or memorandum of sale or amusement charges, issued or employed by a person required to collect tax, if the tax is required to be stated separately thereon as provided in section 9778 of this title, the word "tax" will suffice. (Added 1969, No. 144, § 1, eff. June 1, 1969.)
