The Texas State Comptrollers Office has ruled that, regardless
of the tax-exempt status of the purchaser, we do not have to charge
sales tax on any merchandise that we purchase from AA World Services
or The Grapevine. Also, no sales tax is required on the basic
AA medallions. (i.e., 24 hr/desire chips, monthly chips or the
basic bronze yearly medallions). All other medallions (bi-plate
gold/silver; tri-plate red/black, bill & bob, etc.)
are considered taxable. All items on the price list are designated
in the TAXABLE column as either 'exempt' or 'taxable.'
